Sorry if I have missed any. But it is surely more than five.

Thanks all of you for your numerous response and also for some more 
general thoughts concerning
*collaboratory* development using source code repositories:
If I see how R is evolving I believe that this ideas will be realized soon.
Especially that there are already repositories covering some of the 
functionality and dedicated to R --  Bioconductor  with a svn archive. 
Unfortunately, as I was told by Geff Gentry the costs of administering 
the svn, cvs servers are high, hence the number of developers must be 
limited. Also CRAN has some of the functionality but the svn or cvs 
support is missing.
Luckily hosting the sources on e.g. sourceforge and the builds on CRAN 
or Bioconductor gives already some of the essential functionality.

Therefore at this place big thanks to the Bioconductor, CRAN and 
sourceforge people.
