Upon proposal by Robert Gentleman,
and given the ``immediate'' release of R 0.50 beta (instead of alpha),
I have created three mailing lists concerned with R
where the 2nd one, "R-help", is the replacement for the current "R-testers".
For a while, "r-testers" will be kept as synonymous to "r-help".
The 3 mailing lists are
1) R-announce : Only announcement of new versions / important patches
2) R-help : Questions / Answers about ("released versions of") R
3) R-devel : The alpha-/ pre-testers list of "R-hackers".
People who get the newest release, try out patches,....
(maybe not much more than the R 0.50 prerelease testers)
where 1) is gatewayed to 2) i.e. all "R-announce" is forwarded to "R-help".
The intent is that "R-announce" would have less than one message per day,
typically rather only a few messages per month.
Note that I am sending this to "R-announce" and
everyone who has been on the "R-testers" list is getting this e-mail
since everything that is sent to "r-announce" is automatically forwarded to
AGAIN: For most of you nothing changes, you'll get all the announcements
and everything from "R-help".
However, if you are only interested in important announcements and new
releases, you should
- unsubscribe from "R-help"
- subscribe to "R-announce"
((by sending unsubscribe to R-help-request at stat.math.ethz.ch
subscribe to R-announce-request at stat.math.ethz.ch
in the message "body", not as "subject ..))
PS. Yes, this is the first post to any of these lists,
so there may be problems, even though I don't hope so.
PPS. In spite of the date, this is no "April's fool" joke....
