Dear R developers,

With the release of R 2.5.0 on 2007-04-24 CRAN will remove its 'Devel'
subdirectory (originally intended to distribute "development" versions
of packages, but now apparently no longer needed and/or used).

Packages in the 'Devel' are which do not pass R CMD check without
warnings or errors will be moved to the Archive.  In two cases, the
current maintainers have indicated that this is the preferred approach,
with one package scheduled for resurrection eventually.

In two cases, we have not received feedback from the maintainers as
listed in the package DESCRIPTION metadata:

  gllm: David Duffy <davidD at qimr.edu.au>
  runStat: David Brahm <brahm at alum.mit.edu>

If anyone knows how to contact the maintainers, pls let us know.

The maintainer of 'ensemble' has suggested to look for a new maintainer.

In case you are interested in taking over maintaining one of

  ensemble gllm runStat

pls let us know.
