Great to hear!

Actually, I only saw your post because I have a google alert that
spotted it. I signed up for the list so I can post, but promptly went
nomail as I already belong to far too many lists to read in a day.

I have no problems with packaging PL/R for Macports, and even bought a
Macbook Pro almost two years ago so I could do such things, but have
never been able to find the time to get over the initial learning curve
to do the packaging. I'm more than happy to help someone who already
knows what they're doing with the packaging though ;-)
