Yes.  We should have sent email about it to r-devel but it has been a 
hectic several days.

The bad news is that the newly installed cvs.r-project.org machine, 
which is also rsync.r-project.org, was compromised and we had to take it 
off the net.

The good news is that, thanks to heroic efforts by Martin Maechler and 
Deepayan Sarkar, the CVS repository has been transformed to Subversion 
and is available at http://svn.r-project.org/R/ (and at 
https://svn.r-project.org/R/ but SSL is probably only needed by those 
doing commits).  If you have a Subversion client (see 
http://subversion.tigris.org - those using Windows may also want to look 
at http://tortoiseSVN.tigris.org/) you can check out and update the 
current r-devel from http://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk/ and the current 
R-patched from http://svn.r-project.org/R/branches/R-1-9-patches/
