mail-sources is used to tell Gnus "This is where incoming email arrives,
get email from there and move it into the mail-groups defined in Gnus."

To me it sounds like you want to access the Maildir
~/Mail/xeonmailinglist directly in Gnus, without moving the emails? If
so, the approach you have commented out is more likely to be in the
right direction, I think.

Check out the documentation of Maildir:


Especially the second and very last paragraphs.
