To see all the packages that are installed on a given build machine, go
to the daily build/check report


and follow the link in the "Installed pkgs" column in the 2nd table
starting at the top of the report.

update.packages() is run everyday before the builds are actually started.
The value passed to its 'repos' argument contains "http://cran.fhcrc.org".
In other words the build system should always use the very latest version
of what CRAN packages are currently available. Please let us know if you
see something different.
