Apologies for cross-posting ...

This project is looking for a maintainer.  To quote from the Goose web

"Goose is a LGPLed C++ library dedicated to statistical computation.  The
two design goals of this project are:

To create a useful and complete system that takes advantage of C++'s
features to improve the clarity of statistical code and that is easier to
use for programmers.

To produce a complete set of Guile bindings, exporting all of the C++
library's functionality to that environment.

A third, ancillary goal is to provide statistical functionality for Guppi,
the Gnome plotting and data-visualization program.  The desire for
non-trivial statistics in Guppi was actually the motivation for creating

I think there may be some synergy here with R or Octave and people on the
Allstat list might also be interested.
