and I think this has "long" happened.

I wonder however, why

  biocLite(.)  or biocinstalll(.)

do only partially work for me.
I get

  Running biocinstall version 2.0.3 with R version 2.5.0 (currently in alpha)
  Your version of R requires version 2.0 of Bioconductor (currently in alpha too).
  Will install the following packages:
   [1] "affy"        "affydata"    "affyPLM"     "annaffy"     "annotate"   
   [6] "Biobase"     "Biostrings"  "DynDoc"      "gcrma"       "genefilter" 
  [11] "geneplotter" "hgu95av2"    "limma"       "marray"      "matchprobes"
  [16] "multtest"    "ROC"         "vsn"         "xtable"     
  Please wait...

and in the end nothing is installed.
Maybe you need to update the index file there,
or was I supposed not to use biocinstall() for alpha/beta
testing ?
