I found a link at the mother of all .els

The link is:

,----[ From the documentation ]
| ;; What does it do?  Well, it allows you to index your mail using some
| ;; search engine (freeWAIS-sf and Glimpse are currently supported),
| ;; then type `G G' in the Group buffer and issue a query to the search
| ;; engine.  You will then get a buffer which shows all articles
| ;; matching the query, sorted by Retrieval Status Value (score).
| ;; When looking at the retrieval result (in the Summary buffer) you
| ;; can type `G T' (aka M-x gnus-summary-nnir-goto-thread RET) on an
| ;; article.  You will be teleported into the group this article came
| ;; from, showing the thread this article is part of.  (See below for
| ;; restrictions.)

Kai has written quite a few different distributions, and is one
of the most helpful people you will find on usenet.  Have any
problems, ping him or and you will get quick

Good Luck.

PS, if you get it going, please report back a little summary of
your findings about how hard to use and how good it might be.
