This is a very common piece of advice. However, this is not what you would imagine if you read the description of R-SIG-mac on the R home page:

R-SIG-Mac R Special Interest Group on Mac Development

This is very similar to the description of R-devel:

This list is intended for questions and discussion about code development in R.

And that description is even more intimidating when you read further:

Questions likely to prompt discussion unintelligible to non-programmers or topics that are too technical for R-help's audience should go to R-devel

Would it make sense to change the description of R-SIG-mac so that it would welcome question on R usage in Mac, instead of being a "Mac Devolepment" forum that sounds like being "unintelligible to non-programmers"?

cheers, jari oksanen
