The info files contain a reformatted version of nearly the entire
content of the doc/cvs.texinfo file.  The man pages contain, basically,
a reformatted version of the "Guide to CVS Commands" appendix of the
same document.

They do, as does the online & PDF manuals, since both are also generated
from the same source, but whether they are formatted in such a way that
the information is easy to locate or easily spotted may be another
question entirely.  :)

If you feel like inserting any constructive criticisms or rewritings
into the new Wikized manual
<http://ximbiot.com/cvs/wiki/index.php?title=CVS--Concurrent_Versions_System_v1.12.12.1>,
I am going to try to keep the distributed manual in sync with the best
changes.

Regards,

Derek
