       The "Submit to CRAN" button on that page is hidden by default but 
is exposed by clicking on the "Show/Hide extra info" button right below 
where it gives "Build Status" and "R install command". (I had trouble 
finding the "Submit to CRAN" button for a while after it became hidden.  
You need "Build status:  Current".  Also, at least the for last 
submissions I made, the CRAN maintainers did NOT accept updates if there 
were Warnings or Notes in the "Package Checks";  these warnings are also 
hidden until you click "Show/Hide extra info".)
