Hi all,

regarding to PyQGIS CookBook [0] plugin documentation can
be written as HTML files and to open help developer should
use method showPluginHelp() from qgis.utils module.

In same time showPluginHelp() used deprecated method openURL()
from QgsInterface class [1]. And as I can see there are no alternatives
for this method. So what is best solution for displaying Python plugin
help in long-term period? Use showPluginHelp() as suggested in
cookbook or implement own method directly in plugins?
