The R Foundation for Statistical Computing, the Vienna-based non-profit organization that oversees the R Project, has just added several new "ordinary members". (Ordinary members participate in R Foundation meetings and provide guidance to the project.) The new members are: Dirk Eddelbuettel, Torsten Hothorn, Marc Schwartz, Hadley Wickham, and Achim Zeileis, Martin Morgan and Michael Lawrence. 

The R Core group, the group of developers with commit access to the R codebase, has also expanded with Martin Morgan and Michael Lawrence joining the team. (Stefano Iacus is stepping down from R Core.)

Each of these new members to R Foundation and R Core have been prolific contributors to the R project over the past several years. It's great to see such a wealth of talent, R expertise and enthusiasm coming to the R project. We welcome them to the project and thank them and all of the R contributors for making R what it is today.
