thanks for the feedback.

In principle, the presence of an "Econometrics" view does not preclude
the existence of a "TimeSeries" or "Finance" view (I already talked with
Dirk privately about the latter). Even if the overlap in packages would
be substantial, there could be value added via the information on the
corresponding HTML page. 
Currently, my personal opinion would be that we don't need a separate
"TimeSeries" view and that we should extend the information on the
Econometrics page instead. But it's not unlikely that I could be
convinced otherwise :-) So if you've got suggestions in that direction,
just let me know.
