Appropriate forum for announcing R package updates

Frank Harrell
I have been confused about the appropriate e-mail address to use to make
announcements to r-help for major package update.  In the past I've
submitted to [hidden email] without seeing the
announcement appear on r-help.

Thanks for any guidance.

Hi Frank,

R-packages (https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-packages) should be the correct list for those announcements.

A quick check of a few recent posts shows that they are being forwarded to R-Help as well.

It is however a low volume list. 116 posts in 2010, 77 in 2011, 72 in 2012 and 25 so far in 2013. The trend would seem to be downward.

Regards,

Marc Schwartz
