ACK.  Some days ago someone posted a User-Agent statistics for the
German Gnus newsgroup (<news:address@hidden>).  It
showed that many people already use Gnus 5.10 (or "No Gnus", the
current development version) together with Emacs 21.3.50.

I would assume that all *important* changes committed by Dave and
ShengHuo in Emacs' CVS have also been applies in Gnus CVS.  But
probably this has been done after the v5-8 point which you considered
upto now.

Most of the Gnus changes in Emacs were committed by Stefan Monnier,
Juanma Barranquero and Andreas Schwab.  If we go for this approach (I
think we will have to do this eventually), I'm optimistic that these
people will point it out if important changes got lost.

Bye, Reiner.
