Why do you assume that? The whole contributor page lists a step by step howto 
for using the CVS. The only source mentioned to get help with CVS it the 
already mentioned link.
And this link, additionally, gives a step by step howto about using cvs. All 
over all someone gets pretty fast the idea that you in fact do not have to 
know anything else about cvs.

If this knowledge is needed to be a contributor here it should be mentioned

No. I do not have the detailed knowledge to improve the CVS faq because I do 
not even know enough to help myself (as you have noticed) and therefore I am 
not the best person to help others with the same problem. Additionally [1] 
(section "Be careful when editing key guides") is pretty clear about working 
on key guides. As a beginner you are supposed to ask others.
