thanks for the suggestion.

The community can help guide people to the current landing page by using 
urls of the form https://bioconductor.org/packages/YourPacakge, without 
any version specification -- this is easy to type and remember, and 
redirects to the 'release' landing page (or devel landing page if the 
package is not yet in release).
