[BioC] Bioconductor web page

I've been creating a script to install all packages that I want on computers in 
our Institute and I've been checking what is installed by biocLite.

The web page:


is incorrect. The error is that the page states that biocLite actually installs 
20 packages, including reposTools. However, reposTools is not installed, but 
affyQCreport is installed.

Could the install-howto be corrected?

I guess to be technically correct, it could be pointed out on the web page that 
installing the packages using biocLite also causes dependent packages, 
widgetTools, affyio, GO, KEGG, tkWidgets, simpleaffy and RcolorBrewer to be 
installed as well. At least, this happens on my Windows XP installation of R2.5.0.
