Kurt Hornik and I will start to publish a quarterly electronic

	``R Newsletter'' 

beginning with January 2001 (if all goes well). The idea is to have a
mixture of articles  describing 
1) new features in R itself
2) contributed add-on packages
3) nice applications
4) more general statistical computing issues related to R
5) or ...

OK, now comes my christmas wish to you: If you are the author of a
package on CRAN and want to promote it a little bit, well, maybe you
find some time during the holidays to write approx. 2 pages (A4 or
letter) in LaTeX and send it to Kurt or me? The same applies if you
simply have a nice application using R.  The idea is to have the
newsletter not too technical, i.e., an article describing a package
could shortly describe the statistical background and then demonstrate
the usage on some typical data set. Of course graphics are more than

The newsletter will be published as PDF file on CRAN, the final format
will be created while we layout number one, hence any LaTeX file
should be fine as contribution.  

Otherwise I wish everybody all the best for X-Mas and a happy new
