It is annoying, and bad on Google's part, but whether it will
turn out badly for GNUS remains to be seen.

I've already said it.  The Kmail developer explained how they made
Kmail work with Gmail using OAuth2.  I am waiting to see what
Larse Ingebrigtsen says about whether GNUS can use that method.

In the mean time, please don't panic.  Please don't post predictions
of disaster.  We don't know yet whether we can solve this problem.

As for discussion of how to move your email account somewhere else,
this is the wrong place to ask for or post advice about that.
Those discussions are useful but they are off-topic here.

Would people please take those discussions elsewhere, so we can
concentrate on developing Emacs?
