Hmm, I guess you're right.
How about we throw away CVS in User Guide and document *all* CVS management
issues in the Devel Guide and simply have a reference to the Devel Guide
in the Users Guide when it comes to CVS ?
WineHQ would then use a link to the Devel Guide only, of course.
I think that makes quite some sense.
