Hi Julien,

I would not pretend that I know anything about the hosting policy on CRAN. However, another place where you could try and host your package is R-Forge (though you might have to ask them the same question): https://r-forge.r-project.org/
Among other things, you can manage your sources via svn, and install the package directly from their server. And do many other terrific things, like bug-tracking, mailing-lists, forums, etc.

Hope this will help.

Best regards,

Thibaut.
