Dear list,

I would like to suggest a small update the ?Distributions man page of the stats package. The current version contains the following line.

  The CRAN package \pkg{SuppDists} for additional distributions.

I think it would be better to put in this man page a link to the CRAN task view on Distributions
http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Distributions.html. It is not true that the SuppDists package alone contains distributions which are not implemented in R base.

Could it be possible to modify this sentence?

I don't know if there are other overview man pages in R related to other task views? But a link to the task views on those man pages could increase the popularity of the CRAN task views.

Kind regards
