We are very pleased that an R project has been selected as one of the GNU
projects for the Google Summer of Code 2006 (http://code.google.com/soc/).

Miguel Angel R. Manese, an M.S. Statistics student at the University of
the Philippines, will be working with Douglas Bates and Brian Ripley on a
project entitled `SQLite Data Frames for R' to let R store very large
datasets in an SQLite database transparently, implementing primitive
operations for data stored in SQLite so that they behave exactly like
ordinary data frames to the users.  It is likely that the project will
result in the first instance in an R package (which may in due course
become part of the tarball).

Congratulations, Miguel!
