(The file `legacy-gnus-agent.el' has been added via Miles' arch-sync
before your message, because Kevin has committed it in the v5-10
branch of Gnus.)

There might be a problem if someone would move from Gnus 5.11 (Emacs
CVS) to an early version of No Gnus.

Gnus works for me, but I don't use the agent.

Hm, as the new agent code is in the v5-10 branch too and we intend to
release 5.10.7 from this branch some day, shouldn't the upgrade
functions be assigned to 5.10.7 *and* we should bump the version in
the v5-10 branch to 5.10.7 [1] now?  Else people using the v5-10
branch outside of CVS-Emacs won't get the proper upgrade functions
(though I doubt that many people use this branch).

Lars, WDYT?

Bye, Reiner.

[1] IIRC, usually the version number is increased (in CVS) from 5.10.x
    to 5.10.x+1 after the release of 5.10.x.  After 5.10.6 this didn't
    happen because it jumped to "No Gnus v0.1".
