I've been talking with the Gnus developers, and it comes up that it would
probably be a good idea to put the current stable release of Gnus into the
next Emacs release.  

Here's what one Gnus maintainer says (just to clarify the version numbering,
Gnus 5.10.x is the branch being suggested for inclusion, but it would be
renamed 5.11 when added to the Emacs tree):

So what about it?  Sounds pretty good and safe to me (and Gnus is largely a
standalone part of emacs).
