Okay, I've found why the Git version wasn't loaded.  I was loading
org-contacts before

(add-to-list 'load-path "/pkg/gnus/lisp")
(require 'gnus-load)

in my .emacs.  Org-contacts requires Gnus, so the old version of Gnus
was already loaded before the above expressions were evaluated.  Now,
I've changed the order of loading, putting the above before loading
org-contacts.  Now

M-x gnus-version

gives "Ma Gnus v0.8" as desired.

As for the original problem, the test thread is now sorted like this:

It isn't quite the ascending order by date within the thread: Yuri
Khan's article should've been two positions below, and Raffaele
Ricciardi's three positions above.

I have

(setq gnus-sort-threads-recursively nil)

(setq gnus-thread-sort-functions
      '(gnus-thread-sort-by-number (not gnus-thread-sort-by-date)))

(setq gnus-sort-gathered-threads-function 'gnus-thread-sort-by-date)

in my Gnus init file.
