Me neither.

For the record some explanations about these files:

  - gnus*.el are (parts of) core Gnus manuals. 
  - Message:(message).         Composing messages.
  - Emacs-MIME:(emacs-mime).   Composing messages; MIME-specific parts.
  Both are supposed to be independent from Gnus.  Alas it they are not
  anymore.  emacs-mime is also used by MH-E.  AFAICS, the MH-E manual
  describes the relevant MH-E specific stuff  and has some references to
  the emacs-mime and Gnus manual.
  - Sieve:(sieve).             Managing Sieve scripts in Emacs.
  - PGG:(pgg).                 PGP/MIME with Gnus.
  - SASL:(sasl).               SASL authentication in Emacs.
  These are independent from Gnus.

It would be fine with me to include those in a separate doc/gnus
directory.  But maybe the authors Simon Josefsson (sieve) and Daiki
Ueno (pgg and sasl) would prefer to have them in doc/misc.

Bye, Reiner.
