Morning everyone.

I don't know how many of you there are, so to those of you that have 
n opart in the following matter, I apologize for the intrusion.

I'm supporting a user who would like to use Bioconductor R in a lab 
environment.  Your site says "users are encouraged to use getBioC to 
obtain, install and update their packages".  No thanks.  It doesn't 
save bandwidth or shorten the download time.  getBioC is also an 
impairment to using one's admin console, and eliminates any 
possibility of performing the installation off-line if needs be.

I'd prefer a web link for "all" packages.  There is no such web link 
though.  The FAQ didn't explain why.  The 
http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/RAqua-FAQ.html page was not 

I'd appreciate the link in any form, published or unpublished.

thanks a mil,
