KDE HIG: What do you do?

Hey all, 

I am preparing for a user test of the KDE4 HIG and would like to get some info 
from you, the users of the HIG.  Not to get too much in to the methods of the 
test, but basically I will observing and taking feedback about how 
participants complete typical sub-tasks like looking up a guideline, 
cross-referencing widgets, or referencing an accessibility implementation.

I have a pretty good idea of some of the things you do and are looking for 
when using guidelines (per user research from last summer), however I want to 
give you the chance to give me some specific things you have or expect to do.

For example, these are some simple task scenarios:

* Look up guidelines for all widgets where you have to pay attention to text 

* Learn more about dialog design and layout before working on a new wizard

* Find out if there is a standard design or implementation for search boxes

So.. (in not so many words..) what do _you_ do?  What are a sample of tasks or 
activities you perform (or plan to) when referencing interface documentation.

Please keep me CC'd.
