If you're using fancy splitting with the gnus that ships with emacs 24,
you probably just need to configure these three variables:

(setq nnimap-split-methods 'nnmail-split-fancy)
(setq nnmail-split-abbrev-alist
      '((any . 
        (mail . "mailer-daemon\\|postmaster\\|uucp")
        (to . "to\\|cc\\|apparently-to\\|resent-to\\|resent-cc")
        (from . "from\\|sender\\|resent-from")
        (daemon-errors . "Cron daemon\\|mailer-daemon")
        (list . "list-id\\|x-mailing-list\\|to\\|cc\\|sender")))

(setq nnmail-split-fancy
      '(| ("from" mail (| ("subject" "warn.*" "mail.warning")
          (& (|
              (any "" "list.ding")
                ("subject" "ding" "ding.misc"))
             ;; Other mailing lists...
             ("list-id" "conkeror\\.mozdev\\.org" "list.conkeror")
             (any "infosecnews" "list.infosecnews")
             (any "orgmode" "list.orgmode")
             (any "emacs-orgmode" "list.orgmode")
             (any "bbdb-info"  "list.bbdb-info")
             (any "info-gnus" "")
             (any "emacs-devel" "list.emacs-devel")

In a nutshell, gnus got rid of the old nnimap-split-fancy function (used
in Emacs 23), so you now need to use nnmail-split-fancy with nnimap.
