One last quick question ... does anyone archive older CRAN package check summaries? I searched the web but could not find any. My package was archived in February of this year so any package check summary from earlier than that should help me figure out what is broken on MacOSX or Windows.

I have no problems with the move if this was simply because of low demand. However, if there was a build issue with the newest releases that caused problems, I would be happy to address it. I'll just ask my students to install it from my own locally hosted source archive.
