We are making slow progress on the normal and regression chapters as we decided to write the package at the same time we revise the chapters… Jean-Michel transformed the variable selection and model choice R codes of the regression chapter into generic functions that will fit within the package. I rewrote the section on testing, removing all connections to classical testing, 0-1 loss functions and 5% errors, towards a purely model-choice perspective. This does not modify the computational aspects but it makes the discourse more coherent and bypasses the debate about whether or not posterior probabilities are commensurable to p-values and all that. Last morning, I went running to the two creeks (locally called calanques) of Morgiou and Sugiton on a very nice costal trail.
