Hi all,

Discussing this on the list or in a conference call would be great. I  
think we are in pretty good shape for most of these things.
-plotting code should be a straightforward merge of the summer of code  
branch into trunk
-I think most of the bugs listed on the tracker have actually been  
fixed, there are a few functions that need some more work or should be  
taken out for now (i.e. tdata[x,y] <- foo). Thanks for fixing the  
compilation issues Ben, phylobase compiles cleanly now on x64 linux  
and mac. I will go through the list of bugs/feature requests on R- 
Forge and try to clean out the requests that have been dealt with. If  
others have fixed bugs/feature requests go ahead and change their  
status to resolved.
-The node-labeling scheme has been updated already unless there were  
further changes needed.

This sounds like a great idea, I'd be interested, will have some time  
over the 'holidays' to work on this. What are people's schedules like  
- would a brief call sometime in the next few weeks work?
