That stuff got moved to wiki some years ago.  The idea was 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 that section is on the wiki [1] but not all.
There is info on how to document, but not a list of texinfo markup.
