Dear Martin,

thanks for your description, just a question

> mkdir -p ~/src/R-devel
> cd ~/src/R-devel
> svn co https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk
> tools/rsync-recommended

I think this should be


> mkdir -p ~/bin/R-devel
> cd ~/bin/R-devel
> ~/src/R-devel/configure && make -j


~/src/R-devel/trunk/configure  && make -j

am I right?

Why should I do that? I thought R-3-1-branch should be generally the
stable release -- the one that I is conveniently installed and
distributed using my regular package manager, without me having to
worry about it. You have confused me.

Kind regards,
