I feel that as long as people continue to provide help on r-help wikis
will not be successful. I think we need to move to a central wiki or
discussion board and to move away from e-mail. People are extremely
helpful but e-mail seems to be to always be memory-less and messages get
too long without factorization of old text. R-help is now too active
and too many new users are asking questions asked dozens of times for
e-mail to be effective.
The wiki also needs to collect and organize example code, especially for
data manipulation. I think that new users would profit immensely from a
compendium of examples.
