I'm happy to announce that there is now a real bug tracking system for

Hopefully, this will make it easier for us to keep track of unresolved
bugs, which has been difficult because of the massive amount of email
that we receive.

The system, which is of the JitterBug variety is available through the
web at


or via email to

r-bugs at biostat.ku.dk (which is aliased to r-bugs at stat.math.ethz.ch for
the absent-minded...)

There are no particular formatting requirements for reports, although
the web interface tries to help you remember to give information on
your R version, OS, etc.

The web interface also allows you to browse through old reports to see
whether your problem has already been reported by someone else.

The members of the core team are automatically notified when new
reports come in. You will not necessarily receive any response to a
bug report, other than perhaps that the next version of R will have
one bug less.

Note that this is intended to help us get rid of bugs in R, not as a
general helpdesk service. For problems in using and installing R, the
mailing lists should still be preferred.
