No, I did not include it in the GNU Emacs repository because it is not
used by GNU Emacs.

The README, which explains how to install MH-E from the tarball at
SourceForge, isn't needed by GNU Emacs users who are using the built-in
version of MH-E.

I did these things to minimize user confusion, although it appears it
was at the expense of maintainer confusion ;-).

MH-E-NEWS is in the etc directory.
