[R-pkgs] New package metap on CRAN

Michael Dewey
This package provides meta-analysis of significance values.

Although the preferred way of performing meta-analysis uses effect
sizes sometimes these are unavailable and only p-values can be
obtained from the primary studies. The metap package provides several
ways of synthesising p-values and a graphical display. There exist a
number of packages on CRAN which use one or other of these techniques
in the context of genetic studies but metap is designed for general
purpose use.

Comments welcome.
