Debian packages for R-1.3.0

I have installed the binary packages for Debian GNU/Linux release 2.3
(woody) in the U.S. mirror of the CRAN archive.  They should propagate
to the main CRAN archive within a day and to the other mirrors within
two days.

These packages have been compiled with gcc-3.0 and g77-3.0.  I believe
the testing distribution currently provides only a snapshot of
gcc-3.0, not the latest released version, so this may cause problems
with installation under the testing distribution.  I can recompile the
packages if this becomes too awkward.  Let me know if you need this.

These packages have been linked against Camm Maguire's latest
atlas2-base package for Atlas.  I would recommend getting that - it is
a much more recent version of Atlas.

I need a volunteer to compile the packages on a Debian 2.2 (potato)
system.  Thomas Lumley has done that but I know he is very busy now
and I don't want to impose on him.  If you have a machine running the
stable Debian distribution and could create the package, please
contact me.
