Dear all,

I talked with colleagues this morning and we realized that some people
(=me) pronounce CRAN like the German word "Kran" (probably pronounced like
"cruhn" in English -- if it was a word).
My colleague pronounced it as "Sea-Ran" or "Sea-Run". The colleague was a
student and has worked at the same institution as an R Core Developer and
heard it from him personally.

So now I am puzzled. Have I been wrong about 43% of my life? ;-)

Honestly: Is there a unique way how the core developers prounounce CRAN?

Not an urgent question at all but maybe interesting to many of us.
