To clarify, the developers, Duncan Murdoch, Michael Lawrence, and Martin
Maechler, who are R Core Developers are participating in the project, but
this should not be construed to be an endorsement from the R Core
Developers as a whole, and the work of the R Documentation Task Force is
not guaranteed to be included in R Core.  My apologies to any who may have
misinterpreted the intentions of the announcement.
