Gnulib homepage and CVS mirror

On the Gnulib homepage <http://www.gnu.org/software/gnulib/>, I read

  You can use CVS in a read-only way, to retrieve the latest version
  from the Git repository, using a command like this:

    cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/gnulib.git co \
      -d gnulib HEAD

But then, if I try the command above, I get:

   cvs [checkout aborted]: connect to \
     pserver.git.sv.gnu.org( failed: \
     Connection timed out

Since I reckon nobody in his sane mind is still using CVS to access
to the Gnulib repository, couldn't that statement in the home page
be simply removed?  And IMHO, any access to GNulib through CVS should
be simply disabled (but I won't fight for that if anybody disagrees).
