Here's a suggested patch for this. Most of it is just taking out the
cvs documentation since most of the git info was in there already. I
also moved some notes around.

Finally, I took the liberty to rip out the <appendixinfo> part listing
specific authors. Most of what they did is gone now anyway, and we
don't have those entries on other files.

What about the messages in configure?
"configure:*** Without Bison you will not be able to build PostgreSQL
from CVS nor"

coming out of config/*.m4?
