Thanks a lot for the fast feedback.

@Caryl: "Using" for me is the more traditional manual-style (which we have
right now) and focuses on what the software does. I do believe that this
should be separate from the "Applying" or your "Learning with" (which I
much prefer over "Applying").

@Cherry: Given that the content we produce here won't just be available in
the form of the current Help Activity (but also on wiki pages, a possible
print edition, an online version, etc.) the length of a menu in one of
these options shouldn't dictate our content choices IMHO. Aside of that:
Which sections do you think we should consolidate?

@Tony: Similarly to my comment to Cherry I think that the alternative you
suggest might well be better suited for a specific artifact such as the
print edition but I do think there's a value to having "where to get it"
and "reporting bugs" on other artifacts such as w.l.o. Plus I also think
that the "where to get it" information (most likely pointing towards ASLO)
is useful as it's a place to get updates, etc. while the Control Panel's
Update functionality isn't completely doing its job.

Just my 2 eurocents,
