Hm, I got Emacs sources from git mirror at git://git.sv.gnu.org/emacs.git.
Emacs version is GNU Emacs 23.0.94.1 and it seems that nnmairix
revision is only 0.6, I read this from the header of lisp/gnus/
nnmairix.el. So it seems pretty old.

I'm going to update my emacs sources, but is revision 1.13 going to
fix the issue I encountered ?

[me updating emacs source]

OK I got EMACS_PRETEST_23_0_95 and the revision of nnmairix is still
0.6... but I'm not sure about which branch or tag I should use since
the repo branches/tags looks very messy IMHO.

Also I'm suprised about the difference between the revision from Gnus
CVS and Emacs CVS...

thanks
