Hi, Ott et al.:

       What's the best way to get "Travis CI" to build and test the two 
packages, Ecdat and Ecfun, that have long been combined in the Ecdat 

       Following Ott's advice and studying studying Wickham's "R 
Packages" (http://r-pkgs.had.co.nz/), I was able to configure RStudio so 
it would sync using git with "GitHub.com/sbgraves237/Ecdat".  However, 
when I tried to configure "Travis CI", it said, "No DESCRIPTION file 
found, user must supply their own install and script steps".

       Earlier in this thread, I think someone suggested I make the 
Ecdat and Ecfun packages separate projects on GitHub (though I can't 
find that suggestion now).  This would not be an issue if it were all 
local without version control.  With RStudio managing my interface with 
GitHub, it now seems quite tricky.

       Thanks again to all who have offered suggestions so far.  This 
migration from R-Forge to GitHub seems complete except for the automatic 
tests provided via "Travis CI".
