Same question here.

For example, in trunk head as of right now (rev 101804), when I'm in a
Gnus summary buffer and I run 'B m' (for `gnus-summary-move-article'), I
get an error:

  Symbol's function definition is void: remove-if-not

The debugger confirms what the source code implies:

  Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-function remove-if-not)
    remove-if-not(gnus-valid-move-group-p [0 0 0 some-group-name
                                           0 0 some-other-group-name
                                           0 more-hash-data 0 0 ...])
  gnus-read-move-group-name("Move" nil (174666) "")
  call-interactively(gnus-summary-move-article nil nil)

The function 'remove-if-not' is defined in lisp/emacs-lisp/cl-seq.el.
It's listed in cl-loaddefs.el, too, but clearly somehow it's not getting
loaded.  I can hack around it for now, but there's surely a Right Fix
that any Gnus hacker will know.

What's the right place to report this kind of thing?
