Bug#1220: CVS postinst message rather verbose

Is it still necessary to ask in postinst for creating a CVS
repository? CVS 1.5 contains a standalone cvsinit program
(/usr/bin/cvsinit) which you can use at any time.

I suggest to delete the cvsinit question in postinst.

Possibly a message that points to cvsinit is useful because cvsinit
has neither a manual page nor is it mentioned in the GNU Info file.
(The package maintainer could ask the current cvs developers at cyclic
for these items. They wrote me they have a manual page for cvsinit
though it isn't in the distribution yet.)
