As the 0.65 release should happen within the next few weeks, now would
be a good time for updating/improving our impressive collection of add
on packages.

Issues to look look into include:

* Valid and complete DESCRIPTION, TITLE and INDEX files.

* Complete data/00Index files (if applicable).

* All examples should be executable to that R CMD check passes.

* src/Makefile (if there, most likely not needed) should be correct
(FLIBS etc). Follow the etc/Makeconf rules ...

Minor issues:

* The formatting of TITLE files is still not consistent. Please follow
the format of the add-ons in the R distribution.

* It would be nice if compilation with `-Wall' would not give any
warnings ...

* Please watch the Rdconv messages when building the help files from the
Rd sources, and try to fix problems with missing links. Note that Fritz
is planning on extending the \link{} command so that it can point to an
entry in a different package, but this is still WIP.

* Note that INSTALL now runs configure and cleanup scripts. If your
package needs something that may not be available, then please use
configure. Package e1071 may serve as an example.

Fritz and I are planning on writing a script that automates the process
of building CORRECT packages. But again, WIP ...

I am looking forward to all improvements ...


PS. Now that we have a ts package in 0.65, should we get rid of bats
and tseries?
