I do agree with your suggestion. There is much more to ESS than I
know and it would be great if we could pool our resources to improve
further. For my part `ess-describe-object-at-point` really improved by
workflow as it can be customized to include any function.
Indeed, it would be great to pool resources on R package development in
I use a lot the new ess-r-package-mode and the devtools wrapper (C-c C-w

testing, checking, etc.

function and C-c C-w d to document (Rd, NAMESPACE, etc.)
I would love to know what other people are doing and happy to contribute as
