The R Foundation is looking for a volunteer to organize the collection
of contributed documentation for the R project.  The collection is
currently hosted on CRAN at https://cran.r-project.org/other-docs.html
We want to move it off the CRAN web site.

We think that this task would be suitable for someone whose primary
interest is in library and information science. Ideally the collection
would be reorganized as an R-project.org epub archive, based on re-
using available open source software which features the following: 

* export to .bib
* support for multiple revisions
* support for supplementary material (such as code and data).

If you are interested then please reply privately to me. The R
Foundation board will discuss this at the next meeting.  You can, of
course, put together a team of people but we really want a single
person to act as point of reference.
