Hi All,

quick question. How does one know which R versions r-release and
r-oldrel correspond to? Is there a prefered way to determine this

So far I could only find messy ways, like parsing the HTML of the
homepage, or (for r-release) checking the latest R-x-x-x tag in the
SVN. The SVN is actually not bad, but how about r-oldrel? Is that
always the previous release? Or the previous minor?

Thanks, Best,
