Yes, sorry. I realized relatively late that we needed the two new packages,
and did not get them into the queue in time for the R 2.5.0 release, despite
an upload made during my vacation :) As this tends to take two to three weeks
with the number of packages going into Debian, I ended up missing this by a
few days.

Sorry for the trouble, and glad you got it working now.


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
