Date: Tue, 1 Apr 97 11:48:02 +0200 Message-Id: <9704010948.AA00412@> From: Martin Maechler <maechler@stat.math.ethz.ch> To: R-announce@stat.math.ethz.ch Subject: R-beta: "R-announce", "R-help", "R-devel" : 3 mailing lists for R 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 "r-help". - ------- 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@stat.math.ethz.ch subscribe to R-announce-request@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....
