       Sounds like they would like to blame someone if something
       happens to the R-installation?
       Anywhay, could you clarify what you mean by being "Y2K"
       complaint? Do you have something like this in mind? (I could be

       Subject:  [R] Y2K compliance of R

-------------- next part --------------

       Hi, I was thinking to ask the University computing Labs here
       to install R and I was told they need a statement that the
       software (R) is Y2K compliant. Which I cannot find in CRAN. (in
       addition to the licensing info).

       Is it a big issue to put such a statement in R? or this has
       legal implications that R do not want as a "free" software?

       If possible I would like to see the statement on both Unix AND
       Win version of R so I can ask them to "officially install" R on
       the labs machines.
