Nice understatement.

Several of my packages don't build on r-forge for some months now 
because some other packages are out of date on r-forge (far behind the 
CRAN version, for instance) or because of the obscure

Error in setwd(libdir) : cannot change working directory

error. I've written support requests, recieved answers, but haven't seen 
solutions. It seems I'm not the only one facing this.

Maybe the r-forge team can tap into the potential of some of its 6000 
users, assuming most of these are developers wanting a good, working 
system? Or are financial resources a problem?
