I don't know why this wouldn't work: this is anonymous CVS access so
anyone should be able to retrieve these with no special permissions
required (you do need to install CVS obviously).

Anyway, you don't necessarily need the boilerplate since you're not
going to be pushing official docs.

You can try just:

   make html

in the make root directory.  Or, probably better if you just want to
post the content to the mailing list, use:

   make info

to generate the info files which are basically text.
