I have uploaded version 0.8 of this package for meta-analysis of 
significance values. In the nearly three years since I last posted here 
about it there have been some additions (see the NEWS) but the most 
important change is an extended vignette which not only describes the 
function but also gives some information about choice between them.

I would be very interested to hear comments. In particular I am 
searching for published worked examples of (a) methods involving 
weighting except for Stouffer's method (b) methods for correlated 
significance values. I only include methods where I can check my coding 
against a published example.

Disclaimer: meta-analysis of significance values is a last resort and if 
you have effect sizes you should not use this package.
