Indeed.  It's been a long time since the FAQ started to be maintained
by the Emacs project per se, so I guess it's time to change that line.

The right way is to modify that page via CVS.  gnu.org sysadmins will
need to set you up for write access to that part of the GNU CVS.

Same answer.

Use "makeinfo --no-headers --output=emacs-faq.text".

I think the Emacs FAQ is way too large for this.  (Reuven Lerner used
to post the FAQ regularly in several parts, but I always found that to
be annoying.)
