A few weeks ago there was some talk about a 'heatmap' function that would plot a heat map with two dendrograms to show clustering (after hclust). I mentioned then that I had been cooking something up. I feel like it's ready to give to the community to use, test, break, etc. Which leads me to my question: How does one go about contributing a function like this, whose singular purpose doesn't warrant a package of its own? Some packages of Bioconductor seem like they might accommodate it now or in the future, such as geneplotter, genecluster (dev). Should I email the maintainers of those packages and try to convince them to wedge in my little function? Any advice?
