If the help depends on the base package, then you only need to add the 
help to the profile.

If the help is "chained" by the base package, the you only need to add 
the base package to the profile.

There is no need to use include/chain and depend in both packages.

Chain is a reverse depend, but the chained package is installed 
immediately after the first package.
