PLEASE do not post several bugs in one report (hint: look at the
       filing system on bugs.r-project.org)

PLEASE discern between actual bugs and points for discussion and
       design issues

PLEASE do not mail to multiple addresses. All bug reports are echoed
       to the r-devel list and should be discussed there. This will
       ensure that the discussion, including possible patches and
       workarounds are filed in the bug repository. Worse, careless
       followups to posts on r-devel or r-help with a Cc: field
       including "r-bugs" will cause the creation of *new* bug
       reports since they lack the crucial (PR#nnnn) part.

Sorry if I sound annoyed, but I am....
