has been set up, but is NOT up to date as Google has announced changes
to the project structure, essentially making them half the size. That actually
fits with some work I'd like to see done to try to consolidate packages nlsr
and minpack.lm into an improved nls(). nls() is now getting quite ancient
and some fixes I've already proposed seem to be on their way into base R.
However, figuring out how to do these nicely so that legacy code is
preserved needs at least two pairs of eyes to find suitable patches. I'm
sure there are plenty of other projects of this type, and useRs are
encouraged to work up proposals.

I've sent a msg to some of the people who have been involved and am
waiting for a reply. I was co-admin in 2010 with Claudia Beleites, and
am considering upping my effort while things are locked down.

Best, JN
