Contributing to project settings dialog

How do we add items to the project settings dialog?  The API documentation provides the names of a number of groups that one can add actions to, but most seem to be menus.  I want to add custom project settings, that have a similar scope to the code style settings.  They should be accessible from that same dialog.

Is there any resource that describes all of the groups that one can add an action to?  Without screenshots or fairly descriptive text, I basically have to guess where each the action will end up in the UI when I specify 'add-to-group'.

Hello Nik,

The project settings dialog doesn't contain any actions. To add a panel to
that dialog, you should implement the Configurable interface and register
it as projectConfigurable extension in plugin.xml.
