Hi Josuah,

I'm planning on releasing the 1.0 version of rapache sometime after the relase of R 2.6.0. Work's been really busy around here, so I haven't had time to finish up the last of the documentation and packaging.

After that, I hope to have time to provide recommendations on how to use rapache in various situations. Expect to see progress here:

near the middle of October.
