Probably not (it is on Martin Maechler's turf, though). These things are run by cron jobs, and sometimes they get stalled. It is also possible that a change to the build tools on that machine caused the tarballs to fail their builds (the way things work, you need to build R before you can build the tarball.)

Is there a need for an R-devel.tar.gz in src/base-prerelease? It would just be a copy of the most recent one.
