Silly isn't it.

For this kind of information (version ...)
we really should have a different menu entry,
e.g.: "Credits" or "Version"

  A word pointing to the meaning or function of things.
  e.g. "What is this about ?"

The help menu should have "Help" "About" "Credits"

About: short description of the program
Credits: version, author, email
