'describe-function'.  It's hard to respond to such a vague

Again, "everywhere" is too broad.  My best guess is that you want to
customize 'help-quote-translation', but please verify that it is what
you want.  If it is, you will find it mentioned in NEWS, so if that
entry needs to be amended, please tell what is missing from it.

The above variable is in the ELisp manual already.

entries are welcome, of course.)
