Yeah sorry, now there are three mails and what I really want to know is
in the third (from 28 Apr 2022 09:53:39 +0200):

On the other hand why do I get this following error at all?

Error in binomial(link = identity) : 
  link "identity" not available for binomial family; available links are ‘logit’, ‘probit’, ‘cloglog’, ‘cauchit’, ‘log’

This is a bit misleading since identity is a legitimate link function
and works perfectly *when* *quoted*.

Short enough? :-)
