It is automated on Mac OS X (currently R builds start at midnight and package builds at 2am ET).


PS: If you see delays (i.e. the check result is not available more than two days after the package is available on CRAN) it's a good idea to contact the corresponding binary maintainer (for OS X it's me) since things can break (packages can run mad and external servers can die).
