[Rd] data.table not available as win binary for R 3.5

Dear all,

to my astonishment data.table cannot be installed on R 3.5 Windows. When
checking the package page, the Windows binary is available for download.
When checking the server however, I can't seem to find data.table. Also
install.packages() says the package is only available in source form and
may need compilation.

Compiling using Rtools 35 is no problem.

Is this merely an issue of CRAN still moving packages around and should I
have a bit more patience, or is there another reason why data.table
currently isn't installable using install.packages() as a binary on Windows?

PS: I obviously set my repos to the official CRAN server to rule out sync
issues between mirrors.
