We moved most of that stuff to the Octave wiki.  The idea is to make the
Octave manual more of a Language Reference so things like tips on how to
write nice help text, configure emacs, Octave coding style, and mercurial
instructions got moved to the wiki.

Some of the text in the section you mention is on the wiki [1] but not all.
There is info on how to document, but not a list of texinfo markup.  The
old version manual is still online [2].  Do you think you may be able to
improve on that wiki section with the type of content you would want?
