Below is a simple script that simulates the form. No crazy RSelenium
browser interactions; I just reverse engineered the HTML form. Tested
and it works.


Not sure if CRAN maintainers will appreciate this, though. The "I have
read the CRAN policies" confirmation page is probably there for a
reason. Also the script will obviously break if CRAN decides to change
the form parameters. However I do agree with many others that some way
to automate the submission process is useful. Perhaps Uwe can comment.
