The link is of the format: gnus:gmane.emacs.gnus.user#8816 it is then
parsed into two variables GROUP and ARTICLE and passed to

It seems gnus-button-fetch-group is not the right function for this
task and gnus-large-ephemeral-newsgroup does not help either.

Let me rephrase the question, I now have group name and article number
outside gnus, what's the best way to fetch that article?
