I hate to say this, but it's pretty standard.  I've had to put up with
this yearly (ESS is a major time suck, and it's just one of many
software/www/documentation projects that I'm involved with).

Can you spin it into an R-news article, or better yet, is it written
in a way that might be publishable in the Journal of Statistical
Software?  (R-news is listed, but not necessarily peer-reviewed, JSS
_IS_ peer reviewed).  I suspect that you would have to change things
slightly (and it is peer reviewed, so could be rejected), but
still, it might be worth a shot.


Note that JSS is affiliated with a decent print journal, Journal of
Computational and Graphical Statistics, which is put out by the
American Statistical Association.  It would be harder to get it
published there (JCGS), but there should be no issue with your HoD/etc
for getting credit for publication in JSS.
