Re: [Rd] requesting a new SIG mailing list

  Is it decided then? It does make sense to me, because much of the hydrologic work that we do is related to aquatic ecology.   I am responsible for coordinating the migration to use R as the supported statistical package within the Water Mission Area of the USGS. I'd expect that many of our hydrologists will be interested in subscribing to r-sig-ecology to keep up with fellow researchers. I am also sure that some will be frustrated because they will need to wade through material not directly related to their work.
  When I hear r-sig-ecology will be the forum for hydrology, I'll notify the transition team so that they can subscribe and other hydrologist as they start to use R.

I'm one of the maintainers of the r-sig-ecology list, and I think it would be entirely appropriate to include hydrology within the scope of the list.

There hasn't been much hydrologic discussion, as you noted, but not because we wish to exclude it.
