No, it doesn't mean that.
"devel" means something like:
This is a package in DEVELopment, i.e.,
it is known to have problems under some circumstances.
The "some circumstances"
- can mean that not all functions work in current
versions of R,
- can mean that C / Fortran code does not properly link on some
- can mean that the code hasn't been tested thoroughly and is huge
(which automatically means it has bugs :-)
Note that the last case is certainly true for 'lme', 'dse' and 'design'.
I think all of these three do not require 0.62 at all.
It certainly would be useful to have a README file in
But then I agree "devel" just means:
``You are on your own if you hope it works'' :-)
