I used this list to share this with package developers - not particularly MacOS X users. As a package provider I'd like to know when packages are not available on all platforms. It seems like a errors, because the records show that packages are typically built every day.

Maintainer has been notified repeatably without response (==don't know if my messages even gets through).

Thanks for this note. As a non-OSX user, I wasn't aware of this. It made me find:

http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/leopard/contrib/r-release/

This is not the directory that are used for the MacOS X links when going to package pages under http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/, e.g.

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/aroma.core/

The MacOS X links is:

http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/universal/contrib/r-release/aroma.core_1.3.1.tgz

Another example is here:

  http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/biglars/

Then, do the MacOS X links on the CRAN package pages need to be updated/complemented?

If this is already well known, that is all I need to hear. (I understand that install.packages() takes care of the installation).
