Let me take this belated opportunity to introduce Jim Hester 
<jhester at fredhutch.org> to the Bioconductor developer community.

Jim is working in the short term on SummarizedExperiment, including the 
refactoring efforts he introduced yesterday as well as coercion methods to and 
from ExpressionSet (an initial version from ExpressionSet to 
SummarizedExperiment is available in the development version GenomicRanges; 
iterations will include coercion in the reverse direction as well as perhaps 
more 'clever' mapping between the probeset or gene names of ExpressionSet and 
relevant range-based notation). Jim will also contribute to ongoing project 
activities like new package reviews, package maintenance, and upcoming release 

Jim brings a lot of interesting biological and software development experience 
to the project. Say hi when you have a chance!
