Vector Generalized Linear and Additive Models
Branch: CURRENT,
Version: 1.0.2,
Package name: RVGAM1.0.2,
Maintainer: mishkaVector generalized linear and additive models, and associated models
(ReducedRank VGLMs, Quadratic RRVGLMs, ReducedRank VGAMs). This
package fits many models and distribution by maximum likelihood
estimation (MLE) or penalized MLE. Also fits constrained ordination
models in ecology.

Log message:
Update VGAM to version 0.9.1.
Major changes since 0.9.0:
o A companion package, called \pkg{VGAMdata}, is new.
Some large data sets previously in \pkg{VGAM} have
been shifted there, e.g., xs.nz and ugss.
In \pkg{VGAMdata} there is (new) oly12 and students.tw.
o pnorm2() argument names have changed from 'sd1' to
'var1', etc. and 'rho' to 'cov12'.
See documentation.
Warning given if it returns any negative value.
o Introduction of gtype arguments for grid search.
o Improved initial values for: lomax().
o Argument 'bred' works for poissonff().
o latvar() generic available, identical to lv(). But the
latter will be withdrawn soon.
o Rank() generic available for RRVGLMs, QRRVGLMs, CAO models.
o New function: pgamma.deriv(), pgamma.deriv.unscaled(),
vlm2lm.model.matrix().
o New VGAM family functions:
posbernoulli.b(), posbernoulli.t(), posbernoulli.tb(tau = 2 or 3).
These provide estimates of N as well as its standard error.
Also, truncgeometric() and truncweibull() are new.
Also, SUR() is new.
Also, binom2.rho.ss() does not work yet.
o New argument 'matrix.out = FALSE' for constraints.vlm().
o cm.vgam() has a few more arguments to provide more flexibility.
But there should be no changes for VGAM users at this stage.
o Renamed functions: confint_rrnb() is now renamed to
Confint.rrnb() and confint_nb1() is now renamed to Confint.nb1().
o Some changes to component names returned by Confint.rrnb() and
Confint.nb1(): $CI. and $SE. are uppercase.
o Some zeroinflated VGAM family functions return a
"vglm" object with @misc$pstr0 for the estimated
probability of a structural zero.
o New data set: olym12.
Note that Students.tw is earmarked for \pkg{VGAMdata}.
o Data sets renamed:
olympic renamed to olym08.
o Qvar() has a 'which.eta = 1' argument specifying which linear
predictor to use. So quasivariances are now
available to models with M > 1 linear predictors.
o Tested okay on R 3.0.0.

Move LICENSE right below COMMENT, that's where it usually should be.
