[R] Wikis etc.

I feel that as long as people continue to provide help on r-help wikis will not be successful. I think we need to move to a central wiki or discussion board and to move away from e-mail. People are extremely helpful but e-mail seems to be to always be memory-less and messages get too long without factorization of old text. R-help is now too active and too many new users are asking questions asked dozens of times for e-mail to be effective.

The wiki also needs to collect and organize example code, especially for data manipulation. I think that new users would profit immensely from a compendium of examples.

Just my .02 Euros
