Bug#512433: ITP: r-cran-vcd -- GNU R Visualizing Categorical Data

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tillea@rki.de>

* Package name    : r-cran-vcd
  Version         : 1.2.1
  Upstream Author : David Meyer <David.Meyer at R-project.org>
* URL             : http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/vcd
* License         : GPL2+
  Programming Lang: R
  Description     : GNU R Visualizing Categorical Data
 Visualization techniques, data sets, summary and inference procedures
 aimed particularly at categorical data. Special emphasis is given to
 highly extensible grid graphics. The package was inspired by the book
 "Visualizing Categorical Data" by Michael Friendly.

This package should be maintained under Debian Science team maintenance.

According to the RFC for an R packaging policy at
I'd like to keep the source package name 'vcd' as the upstream
package name.  On the other hand I'm quite unsure if there are
2 or 3 letter names.  In one of my former ITPs (sp) there is a
conflict with sp - James Clark's SGML parsing tools.

Any comments are welcome.

Kind regards
