Dear Jim, dear Martin,

Thank you for your replies, I have just tested:
svn log -v https://hedgehog.fhcrc.org/bioconductor/trunk/madman/Rpacks | 
and in principle it works.

However, I must admit that it is not the same as Jim's really great 
Changelog, where you could not only browse around but also select a 
certain package and check all changes that were made.

It would be really great to see this web-site working again, and I 
assume that many other people were using it, too, and would be glad to 
have it again.

Maybe, even more people would use it if the official web-site for each 
package would not only have a link to the "Download Stats" (which is 
also great to have), but also a link to the "Bioconductor Changelog" for 
this package.

Best regards
