Don't know which 'package' you are talking about, but personalities
are part of Gnus and should work with any (halfway recent) version of
Emacs/Gnus.

Gnus aliases, on the other hand, was afaik independently developed and
never part of Gnus. Apparently, it's not longer maintained, and I
myself discovered it only recently when coming back to Gnus after a
year of evolution or so. I then grabbed the last version of
gnus-alias.el, dating back to 2003, and apart from one or two minor
points it worked alright, with Emacs CVS in my case (IIRC, one issue
was gnus-aliases not properly overriding the reply-to address, but I'm
not sure right now).

So yes, you should be fine with either. Aliases might need one or two
minor fixes, but it'll become apparent as you try it out.

Regards, Bruno.
