The Maildir root is your server's root level (like INBOX on most IMAP
servers, for example).

Every directory under it is just another group you can subscribe to.
The '.' in the name doesn't matter to Gnus, it doesn't care and will
just show you the directory name as the group name.  You can hit `^'
from the group buffer to see the server list, then ENTER on the maildir
server to see the groups it contains.
