How about R Wiki entries also? The enormous advantage of a Wiki is that
anyone can make contributions, subject to moderation when things get
extreme. I'd like to see copies of all the CRAN Task Views ported to
the R Wiki, with emails sent to the maintainers of all the packages
mentioned, inviting updates, comparisons, clarifications,
amplifications, etc. Similarly, I'd like to see people posting
questions to R Wiki accompanied by a post to R-Help. Then someone else
would edit the question with an answer. Officially designated R Wiki
editors could notify people whose posts seem inappropriate for whatever
reason that their entries may be removed unless clarified, etc. With
the right selection of "editors" and a little time, I think the R Wiki
could become the most valuable documentation available on R.
