I am about to retire from my 'day job' and will therefore have little
further association with acadaemia/research in general or R in
particular. I am currently maintainer for the 3 mapping packages maps,
mapdata and mapproj.
Is there anyone out there who would be willing to take this on?
I have had an offer from someone who is prepared to act as a backup in
the case that nobody else is interested, as a better option than letting
those packages become orphaned. However because he has a young family
at home he has indicated that he would gladly defer to someone who had
the time and inclination.
The 3 packages have recently been updated to incorporate changes
necessitated by the R-devel version of check.
So please reply as soon as possible if you may be interested in this.
Note that from next week, my official address will auto-respond to
indicate I no longer work there, but I will still have access to that
account and will be checking it during August (but not September or
