It is decomissioned. See the current FAQ on CRAN, which says

  Sources are also available via `https://svn.r-project.org/R/', the R   Subversion repository, but currently not via anonymous rsync (or CVS).

There are good, security-related, reasons for discontinuing rsync.

To get R from svn.r-project.org you need an svn client (http://subversion.tigris.org/project_packages.html) and then look at http://developer.r-project.org/SVNtips.html, although

  ## to checkout
  svn co https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk R-devel   ## to update
  cd R-devel
  svn up

is about all you need to know. If you want a GUI use TortoiseSVN (but watch for drastic slowdowns to Explorer with it installed).
