# st: bs problems

Thanks for Stata Corp people (Jeff) responding to my problem. I would be interested in knowing when the update will be realized. One more problem, why the reps(30) I specified is not consistent with the number under the Reps column (22) (as well as the matrix e(reps)? Also, though the ereturn can be modified to have the e(size) something like that, is that possible you could add the size return matrix too for next update? Really appreciate.
