As a former regular Gnus contributor and as a current and long time Gnus
user, I want to give you my blessing. :-)

They are definitively ton of little code improvement you can make. All
of this technical debt reduction will lead to a better Gnus and a better
development future, so yes please!

I don't know how true it is nowadays, but a lot of what was blocking
improvement back then was support for old Emacs version and XEmacs
support. Now that Gnus is in Emacs source tree, I imagine that might not
applies anymore, so, lucky you! :)
