[Bioc-devel] stale link to reposTools in BioC FAQ?

Hi Herve,

[First things first - I want to thank all the
maintainers of update methods - installing and
updating packages is noticeably easier than
even 4 or 5 months ago.  Dependencies are more
reliably identified and installed in order,

Thanks to you and James for the update

It seems quite a few things in the documented
method for updating packages have changed, so
there are several stale/outdated links and 
info items in the FAQ and elsewhere in the
BioC web site.

I just ran an update using

update.packages(ask = FALSE) ## CRAN updates
update.packages(repos = getOption("BioC.Repos"), ask = FALSE) ## BioC updates

Am I missing anything doing it this way?

Any update suggestions/recommendations/pointers
to documentation I've missed would be appreciated.

Right, and the FAQ needs an update. Thanks for pointing this out!
