[Rd] update.packages fails again (PR#972)
Fri, 8 Jun 2001 22:25:17 +0200 (MET DST)
It's happened again:
Depends: R > 1.3.0
which is not only impossible, but breaks update.packages.
How can we test for this?
Unfortunately once such a package is installed, it has to be manually
uninstalled before update.packages will work again.
*PLEASE* can people read the manual to get the syntax right: it is
Depends: R (>= 1.3.0)
but such packages should not be in the main part of CRAN yet.
