You are correct. I was maintaining the changelogs until late last year, 
but the server I was using is not under my control and is being used for 
other purposes that were having adverse effects on the changelog, so I 
asked the folks in Seattle to move it there.

Unfortunately, on a fun scale of 1:10, setting it up rates a -1, so I 
think it has taken a back seat to things like sweet new next-gen 
functions and such. And you are only the second person to mention that 
it is dormant.

But if an up-swelling of interest occurs, maybe Patrick (cough, slacker, 
cough) will get 'er done ;-D

svn co https://hedgehog.fhcrc.org/bioconductor/trunk/madman/Rpacks

then each day (an example being tomorrow)

cd Rpacks
svn update
svn log -v -r {2010-01-15}:{2010-01-14} > svnlog_2010-01-15.txt

But yeah... that would not be fun. I used to parse that by hand every 
month and mail it to the list. That rates a -1e100 on a fun scale of 1:10.
