Hi All,

Couple of web site comments:

1) The current layout of the bioconductor.org doesn't provide much guidance
to getting started with the bioconductor packages.  There is no clear links
to documentation and no introduction to the tools.  Would it be possible to
(at least) give links to the documentation of the individuals packages (not
just the function list)?    As it is now, it is necessary to download and
install the individual packages before having access to the documentation
that can be used to see what might really be useful and how the packages

2) It is not clear from
http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/html/index.html what packages
are included in the 'Bioconductor Package Bundle'  (	Biobase, ROC,
annotate, edd,  and genefilter), nor is it clear what package are 'required'
or 'recommended'.   Please list the contents of the 'Bioconductor Package
Bundle' as well as adding another column to the individual package listing
giving the package 'category'.

More complains, suggestions, complements, etc as I get (try to) things
working and organized.
