Great, thank you!

Can you make sure that your Examples (.EX in S syntax; \examples{..} in *.Rd)
are directly executable?
	1) no leading  ">"
	2) If you show output, precede it by "#"
	3) Use data() datasets or rnorm(.),..etc to construct data,
	   not just 'x','y' etc which may or may not exist.

Yes, this probably hasn't been working for quite a while now
(or maybe only since 0.62.3 ?)

In any case, I have corrected the problem, i.e., 
I actually made a new page accessible by


which provides access to
	1) R manual [help.start()] of currently released version
	2) Our mirror of CRAN
	3) R manual [help.start()] of current ALPHA NON-released version

Please let me know if you still find missing links!
