Because Gnus has to be maintained so as to work with various
versions of Emacsen, including XEmacsen. The parent message of
this thread was sent by the buildbot. It tries building Gnus
on many Emacsen whenever any changes are made in Gnus, and sends
a report to the author if errors are detected. Why the author
was emacs-devel in this case is: I used it when merging the
changes made in the Emacs trunk to the Gnus Git master because
there were two or more authors (maybe Git doesn't allow many
persons for the --author option). I'll use the real author as
ever if it is only one, but as for the many users case I'll use
another one that is at least not emacs-devel.
