This typo in /help command has already been fixed in devel version (so it will be part of 1.0): commit e2798b2cf218a4c1d507638f7f10f8e5eb0e67ae

By the way, for any bug or feature request, please use GitHub (WeeChat has moved to GitHub on 2014-03-03, for more info: http://dev.weechat.org/post/2014/03/03/Git-repositories-moved-to-Github).

I just disabled the creation of bugs/tasks in Savannah (it's now reserved to WeeChat team).

Issuing "/help command" provides the following information:

[core]  /command  <plugin> <command>

launch explicit WeeChat or plugin command

 plugin: plugin name ('weechat' for WeeChat internal command)
command: command to execute (a '/' is automatically added if not found at beginning of command)

But using a plugin name of 'weechat' as directed fails, e.g.:

/command weechat save
-!- Plugin "weechat" not found

The correct name appears to be 'core':
/command core save

which succeeds.
