What's the status and future plans for R-Forge?
I ask primarily because a problem I reported May 15 and 17 via
two different channels has yet to be fixed, and it prevents my
development versions of the Ecdat and Ecfun packages from building --
because the Windows version cannot find "Matrix"; see below.
Secondarily, the version of R that R-Forge tried to use earlier today
was 3.5.3 -- NOT the current version.
Assuming you recommend migrating to GitHub, do you have a
preferred procedure? I found
"https://gist.github.com/friendly/7269490". This says it was "Last
active 2 years ago" but seems to be the most current advice I can find
on this right now. That looks complicated, but I assume it preserves
the edit history on R-Forge. ???

Your Windows platform cannot find "Matrix" and other packages. See:
I reported this to your Support tracker two days ago:
Can someone please fix this?
Or is it now the official policy of R-Forge to ask people to go
someplace else, e.g., GitHub?
From what I know, the basic design of R-Forge is vastly superior
to GitHub for packages submitted to CRAN. However, I've encountered
numerous reliability problems with R-Forge in recent years.
