I'll be happy to take patches, but I don't have any interest in working on it TBH.

While I'm sure the gnome docs guidelines will say documentation should be
entirely self contained, you could write a book about what all the options
exposed in virt-manager actually do. So to anyone that wants to work on this,
I'd say try to find the right balance between explaining the UI and pointing
to external sources for more details. Like if libvirt or qemu docs have a
detailed explanation of what a specific feature does, we shouldn't duplicate
it in virt-manager docs IMO
