You want to run Gnus on sp, instead of on your local machine? That's
surprising; I'm curious why!
I get the feeling that "No Gnus" is just Lars Mange Ingebrigtsen's sense
of humor getting the better of him, and is a code name for the next
release. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnus seems to confirm this:
"The current development version which will be released as Gnus 5.12
was begun on Jan 4, 2004 and is called No Gnus."
I just run Emacs from the its CVS trunk. Gnus is included there, so
there's no separate package to install.
