We're looking into it.

I'm not sure how useful the URL is, complete or not, but I will add it
to a list of improvements. I think that we will be moving towards
increased use of install.packages which does output the complete URL,
but not as a summary message at the end, so it can be hard to catch.

Please hold off on bug reports on the web pages. As you imagined,
things are in a temporary state and we will be putting effort into
website improvements over the next couple of weeks.

Glad to hear it!
