Several of the contrib packages were upgraded today. Most notably,
Thomas rewrote parts of gee which were copied from Numerical Recipes.
Also, I added a port of the `oz' package which seems to work fine.
The current INDEX file is attached. I've made several changes as
suggested. CRAN should be announced soon (hopefully I can get to
upgrading the FAQ tonight).

CRAN/source/contrib currently contains:
acepack.tar.gz:
ace (Alternating Conditional Expectations) and avas (Additivity
and variance stabilization for regression) for selecting
regression transformations.
S avas original by Rob Tibshirani <tibs@utstat.toronto.edu>,
FORTRAN ace code by Friedman & Spector from Statlib.
R package by Thomas Lumley <thomas@biostat.washington.edu>.
(avas ported; ace modified to use double precision, and an R
interface cloned from the avas() one).

R port by Fritz Leisch <Friedrich.Leisch@ci.tuwien.ac.at>.
[1997/04/08]
gee.tar.gz:
An implementation of the Liang/Zeger generalized estimating
equation approach to GLMs for dependent data.
S original by Vincent Carey <carey@biostat.harvard.edu> and
Aidan McDermott.

jpn.tar.gz:
A function to plot Japan's coast-line and prefecture
boundaries.
S original by Ritei Shibata <shibata@statlab.math.keio.ac.jp>.

splines.tar.gz:
Regression spline functions.
R port by Thomas Lumley <thomas@biostat.washington.edu>, based

and `safe.predict' by John Chambers and Trevor Hastie.
[1997/04/08]
survival4.tar.gz:
Functions for survival analysis. This ``port'' is not complete
yet, because it requires a few changes to the R system itself
rather than the add-on package, but most of the functionality is
already available.
Requires splines.
