Description:
------------
The PHP Manual > Appendices > About the manual [1] mentions SVN a lot, so the manual tutorial (dochowto) [2].

They need a rewrite from the recent SVN to git migration.


[1] https://www.php.net/manual/en/about.generate.php and https://www.php.net/manual/en/about.translations.php

[2] http://doc.php.net/tutorial/

Expected result:
----------------
No mention of SVN (or CVS!) sources of the manual.

Actual result:
--------------
"The XML source code may be downloaded from SVN and viewed at » https://svn.php.net/viewvc/."

"People involved in the translations start from the XML source code available from » https://svn.php.net/viewvc/ and from it they translate"

"To checkout the documentation source, use a modified version of the following command where you change {LANG} to a desired language, such as en for only English:

svn checkout https://svn.php.net/repository/phpdoc/modules/doc-{LANG} phpdoc-{LANG}"

"Obtaining SVN access"

Just earlier today I committed a (partial?) fix[1] for the manual.

Yes... I opened this bug almost as a reaction from this specific commit, but to track other places that need a revision up to a full rewrite.

But english is not my native language, so I'm not up to the task,

Few, if any, current doc maintainers are native English speakers.
