There is no general help information at the page for local plugins, neither an information in docs.
Ralf, thanks for your report. I agree that help and documentation for managing local plugins is needed.
I'm watching this issue, and would be happy to review any suggested help string.
Documentation can be added to http://docs.moodle.org/en/Manage_local_plugins.
