Help & Co. resurrected in bug 87315.
*** Bug 87696 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Dang it if this bug isn't true! I checked in some updates on Friday that ought to have remedied this, but I verify that in the 2001062504 build, the help locale stuff is not being seen. All of the resources are placed correctly (i.e., the help chrome is in the help.jar and the localizable stuff--which includes the menu item, the table of contents, and the content itself--is in en-US.jar), but the entry is not being written correctly to the installed-chrome.txt file. cc'ing ssu. Sean, what's not happening here? When I update the entry in the installed-chrome.txt file to point to the en-US.jar, everything is cool. But until I do this, that file is still looking in a subdirectory of help.jar.

Boris and DrJ: How did you come by these builds? Were they the nightlies you got from the mozilla splash page? I need to make sure that this is an issue with a recent installer version rather than a zip file (which might have something like an old installed-chrome.txt left over from before my updates late 6/21). I believe we verified that the help locale stuff was building and installing correctly after the packaging updates. Thanks for getting back to me about this.
I'm using the build from the corresponding directory on the Mozilla ftp site. I'm also using the tarball (no installer), so a stale installed-chrome.txt could well be the issue.
I'm getting all Moz builds from the ftp site too. Too lazy/dumb to build one myself...
Ah, good spot Stephen. I spaced out on the makefiles (and updated only the jar.mn up there). I will get this in as soon as I can. Thanks!

Just checked in walk84's fix for this on the branch (but not yet on the trunk, where smoketests are still being done). Should see this problem resolved (but I'm going to wait a little bit before marking this fixed). Also noting Asa and Leaf's suggestion that, in some cases, this has to do with the fact that the zips made available recently from mozilla.org didn't have the re-registered JARs.
Coming in behind waterson to provide some context to his review here: I checked this fairly urgent into the branch yesterday (a=asa and, IIRC, rs=blizzard), but am going back and getting it reviewed in earnest. This same fix has to be applied on the commercial side (for which I have a patch posted in 5687), where I believe waterson has sr'd too. As soon as the tree(s) open, I will do moz trunk, comm branch, comm trunk with this fix.
Checked in a fix for this today. Mozilla branch and trunk now package localizable stuff in en-US.jar (as opposed to help.jar) successfully. Marking FIXED.
