The (unofficial and not enforceable) policy is here:

If you notice somebody wants you to do their homework, you don't.
If the proper questions are asked, you help (guide into the right direction).
If you don't realize soon enough that somebody wanted their homework done and you've given 
a complete answer, hopefully their instructors read the lists, too.
