[Bioc-devel] remove history vignettes

Well, You shouldn't expect the release branches to change at all based on
anything you do on trunk. They never will.

The release branch is (almost completely frozen), you shouldn't be making
changes there generally. Changes in documentation are a grey area, I
suppose, but I try to avoid those as well. Basically, once released the
package should be "as-is", and exactly the same for all people using it at
any point in that release cycle.

I'm not sure why the vignettes are still there on the devel landing page if
you have in fact bumped the package version in svn though. That likely
comes down to exactly how those splash pages are generated, which I don't
