The posting guide appears to be ambiguous here.
If anything, it said to me that R-help was the
appropriate list, being
The ‘main’ R mailing list, for discussion about problems and
solutions using R to solve problems
Questions likely to prompt discussion unintelligible to non-
programmers or topics that are too technical for R-help's audience
should go to R-devel.
I would have said that my bundle problem fell in the first category
and not the second:
I use the package management features of R to solve problems---and
there's no C / C++
in the question. I was just in some confusion about the status of
which doesn't really count as "code development", IMO. Hence R-help.
Can we make the "which list" section of the posting guide more
I have a similar dilemma for many posts.
