      Description

      Reviewing MDL-32585 it was detected that there are a number of _help (suffixed) strings in admin settings. Following the string documentation they should be _desc strings instead, irrespectively of their contents being the same. That allows separate editing.

      https://docs.moodle.org/dev/String_API#Help_strings

      This is about to:

      1) fix all the wrong uses in admin settings/tree.
      2) perform the needed AMOS COPY commands to ensure all the new exist.
      3) ensure this doesn't happen again (some check should be added somewhere).

      Ciao
