But, independent on how many people need to change their habit, the only
thing they actually need to change is a single command:
s/cvs co .... /svn co ...../ (with appropriate URLs).

I agree that docs for that part of the 'procedure' may be spread over lots
of places, and that they all need fixing. But let's not stare at the problem
like a deer into the light of an approaching car.

(And yes, if there is a list of items to be fixed, I'd happily volunteer.)
