Hi, Gabor:

          Sounds great. May I suggest a minor modification something like the following;

 >    R-help@stat.math.ethz.ch mailing list
 >    https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help
 >    PLEASE include in your post minimal, self-contained, reproducible 
code as suggested in posting guide,
"www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html". Posts more consistent with this standard tend to get quicker, more useful replies.

          I'd also suggest adding something like this to the Special Interest Group posts as well. I also reply to questions on R-sig-finance, and I find myself going to R-help to copy the "PLEASE do read the posting guide" comment for r-sig-finance.

	  Thanks for suggesting this.
	  Spencer Graves
