My goal is to sync each stable release of Tramp with Emacs in such a
way that the two copies are equal.  So a comment along the lines of
"Tramp synced with 2.0.42" is pretty clear, I guess ;-)

So far, only little changes had been made in Emacs CVS, but now, Luc
has written lots of email that I still haven't fully processed...  So
perhaps this approach will prove to be more work than I intended.

But in the case of Gnus, it appears that lots of changes have been
made to Emacs CVS which have not systematically been merged back.  I
wonder if something could be done about this?

Perhaps all Emacs developers working on externally maintained package
X should get CVS access to that package, as well?
