  1. Don't generate plain-text HISTORY and src/test/regress/README anymore.

    Providing this information as plain text was doubtless worth the trouble
    ten years ago, but it seems likely that hardly anyone reads it in this
    format anymore.  And the effort required to maintain these files (in the
    form of extra-complex markup rules in the relevant parts of the SGML
    documentation) is significant.  So, let's stop doing that and rely solely
    on the other documentation formats.
    Per discussion, the plain-text INSTALL instructions might still be worth
    their keep, so we continue to generate that file.
    Rather than remove HISTORY and src/test/regress/README from distribution
    tarballs entirely, replace them with simple stub files that tell the reader
    where to find the relevant documentation.  This is mainly to avoid possibly
    breaking packaging recipes that expect these files to exist.
    Back-patch to all supported branches, because simplifying the markup
    requirements for release notes won't help much unless we do it in all
