This hook is called when creating a summary mode buffer.
This is called as the last thing before doing the threading and the generation of the summary buffer. It’s quite convenient for customizing the threading variables based on what data the newsgroup has. This hook is called from the summary buffer after most summary buffer variables have been set.
It is called after the summary buffer has been generated. You might use it to, for instance, highlight lines or modify the look of the buffer in some other ungodly manner. I don’t care.

When Gnus discovers two articles that have the same
it has to do something drastic. No articles are allowed to have the
Message-ID, but this may happen when reading mail from some
sources. Gnus allows you to customize what happens with this variable.
If it is
nil (which is the default), Gnus will rename the
Message-ID (for display purposes only) and display the article as
any other article. If this variable is
t, it won’t display the
article—it’ll be as if it never existed.
This function, which takes two parameters (the group name and the list of articles to be selected), is called to allow the user to alter the list of articles to be selected.
For instance, the following function adds the list of cached articles to the list in one particular group:
(defun my-add-cached-articles (group articles) (if (string= group "some.group") (append gnus-newsgroup-cached articles) articles))
A list of newsgroup (summary buffer) local variables, or cons of
variables and their default expressions to be evalled (when the default
values are not
nil), that should be made global while the summary
buffer is active.
Note: The default expressions will be evaluated (using function
eval) before assignment to the local variable rather than just
assigned to it. If the default expression is the symbol
that symbol will not be evaluated but the global value of the local
variable will be used instead.
These variables can be used to set variables in the group parameters while still allowing them to affect operations done in other buffers. For example:
(setq gnus-newsgroup-variables '(message-use-followup-to (gnus-visible-headers . "^From:\\|^Newsgroups:\\|^Subject:\\|^Date:\\|^To:")))
