That's not actually surprising.  There are three versions of Gnus: the
named "alpha" versions ((ding), September, ..., No), the even-numbered
"beta" versions (5.2.x, 5.4.x, ..., 5.10.x), and the odd-numbered
"release" versions (5.3, 5.5, ..., 5.9).  The reality is that the
"release" versions are the versions bundled with FSF Emacs, and (aside
from the version number) are generally identical to the last "beta"
version before that.  Also in general, the "beta" versions are pretty

So I'd believe that if you're using a CVS Emacs, and they're gearing
up for a release, then they'll have taken a snapshot of Gnus 5.10.6
and rebranded it Gnus 5.11, which is perfectly normal.  I think
there'll be at least one more Gnus 5.10.x release; the CVS Emacs
version of Gnus might have some of those changes from CVS Gnus.
