[R] Newsgroup - another try?

After reading all this, I have come to the conclusion that
a newsgroup would present many obstacles.  I would support
it if it were started, but it seems clear that some sort of
mailing list is still needed.  Mail-news gateways are also
more complicated than they may appear.  (My university has
all but abolished them because of excessive demands for
staff support from people who try to use them.)

Thus, I am planning to try to set up the mail archives so
that they are searchable with HtDig.  I'm not sure that this
can be done (by me), but I thought that I ought to say that
I intend to try.  I already have HtDig set up for R
documents at http://finzi.psych.upenn.edu (which does not
always have its power turned on, but I guess it will once I
do this, if I do).
