comment How to display context-sensitive help for buttons?
In that case, I'd use a persistent help icon [?] near each / both buttons that triggers in-context help (i.e. a popover or tooltip). I wouldn't do a hover over the button itself; if these are repeated-use in-app tools, then potentially triggering a hover whenever you use the button gets annoying. Having a question-mark icon near the button(s) lets the user trigger help for more info but doesn't get in the way of someone who has learned them already.

comment Where is the intersection between Information Architecture with Software Architecture?
Good answer... minor typo, the phrase is "Hail Mary". Tried to fix it but SE wouldn't let me make a change of just 1 character. :-/

Are they editing a text file in markdown, or are they using a web ui or gui to do the editing?

comment How can the word “feedback” in the header affect potential new customers?
We have a feedback button prominently displayed in our main webapp header and we get tons of feedback from it. I don't know what your basis is for saying that having those links will likely drive little to no feedback.

I generally agree with the approach. Though It's probably overkill to A/B test something this small. This is a pretty straightforward thing to do.
