Fine with me. But I don't really think that the documentation is the
problem - it is simply that some people don't bother to read the
manual and complain when they don't find what they expect.
Maybe the following would be sufficient:
Use the manual for help on switching from some other system.
But if there is no visually distinctive CVS or SVN etc. those who
don't read things are likely to miss that just as well.
