hi:  thanks everyone for pointing me to the contribution page..

[a] it was not obvious to me how to find this page.  if you like 
contributions, please make it a bit more obvious.  I would think a 
button on the home page would be a good idea.

[b] any kind of trinket sale (a CD?) for money would be useful for 
research budget based donations.  now I will try to find out if my 
research budget allows me to send donations.  (how about buying some air 
for $100?)  grrrr...

[c] for individuals, a paypal button to donate $x would be a very good idea.

[d] VISA works well internationally---but non-US check based items do 
not for our accounting.  especially if the R-project does not have a US 
bank account, paypal would be useful.

Andy: yes, the paypal-like scam is another phishing one.  the same 
applies to most other orgs these days (ebay, amazon, etc.)
