I'm very sorry to hear about the chronic illness situation.  I wish
you and your family all the best in dealing with that.

I used Emacs + Gnus and then XEmacs + Gnus starting about 1994 up
until a couple of years ago.  I used spamassassin to filter my email
during the last couple of years that I used Gnus.  Even with constant
training, it never worked very well.  A couple of years ago, for a
variety of reasons, I moved almost exclusively to gmail.  I do get the
occasional false negative or false positive, but both are pretty rare.

I think I have some things to offer this project and would be
delighted to have a chance to contribute.
