Just a quick message to say that,

when choosing (with or without the tcltk window) "Bern 1 (swiss)" as CRAN mirror to install
a package (function install.packages) for R-2.5.0, the list of available packages
for osx seems not complete:

AMORE, AdaptFit, AlgDesign, AnalyzeFMRI, SemiPar, cluster, nlme, survival

when choosing "Bern 2 (swiss)" as CRAN mirror to install a package for R-2.5.0,
I get the following warning:

> install.packages()

--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session --- CRAN mirror

  1. Australia (QLD) 2: Australia (VIC)
  2. Austria 4: Brazil (PR) ...
  3. Spain (Alicante) 52: Spain (Madrid)
  4. Sweden 54: Switzerland (Zuerich)
  5. Switzerland (Bern 1) 56: Switzerland (Bern 2)
  6. Turkey 58: Taiwan (Taichung)
  7. Taiwan (Taipeh) 60: UK (Bristol) ...
  8. USA (WA)
Selection: 56
Warning: unable to access index for repository http://cran.prokmu.com/ bin/macosx/universal/contrib/2.5
Error in install.packages() : argument "pkgs" is missing, with no default

--> when choosing "Zürich (swiss)" as CRAN mirror to install a package for R-2.5.0, it works well.

Greetings, Ken
