I didn't answer this bit: No particular reason. I have 10+ packages on CRAN
but only maintain two or three in Debian ... as the others install so easily
in R itself. (digest for example has not further depends). And I already
have 120+ packages so time is somewhat limited.
But (r-cran-)digest makes some sense.

| Hi Dirk, Andreas,

Oh, something from BioConductor -- nice. I just did a quick apt-cache search
r-bioc and there to be four others so I suppose you know the suggested

Up to you. I can simply close it.
Will be nice to have ggplot2 and reshape in as well.
