Dear readers of R-announce and R-help.
Yesterday, I sent a message with
   Subject: R-announce moved from majordomo to [procmail+mailman]
on Date: Tue, 26 Nov 2002 18:39:45 +0100
to R-announce and hence R-help.

Many of you will have received the message several times,
typically from half a dozen to about 25x.
I do apologize for this.  
The reason was the automatic gateway ("forwarding") of all
R-announce messages to R-help that accidentally produced a mail
loop.  I only found out relatively late (~ 20 min after
sending), and had to stop delivery entirely for which several of
you probably haven't received that message at all.

The new web interface to the list is now available at
and particularly the __archive__ contains yesterday's message
as https://www.stat.math.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-announce/2002/000362.html
(and yes, you should accept the security certificate _once_).

Again with apologies and regards,
