Subject: R-beta: Submissions to CRAN


As mentioned earlier I want to decentralize the package descriptions
of all contributed packages:

Please make sure to include a file called DESCRIPTION in every package
which looks like:

**********************************************************

Package: e1071
Version: 0.7-3
Author: Compiled by Fritz Leisch <Friedrich.Leisch@ci.tuwien.ac.at>.
Description: Miscellaneous functions used at the Department of
        Statistics at TU Wien (E1071).=20
Copyright: GPL

**********************************************************

Further you can use a field called `Depends:' to include a
comma-seperated list of pre-requisited packages.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE A COPYRIGHT LINE IN THE DESCRIPTION!!!

Continuation lines begin with a whitespace character (as in
Description above).

You can take the file $CRAN/src/contrib/PACKAGES as templates (but
don't forget to add the Copyright line :-). This file will be built
automatically by concatenating all DESCRIPTION files.

To all maintainers of current packages: Could you please update the
packages by including the DESCRIPTION file?

Best,
Fritz
