Hi Petr,
You sent this to the mailing list, not just the maintainers..

Yes, and many others probably did too.

Indeed, that's how we also read the message but our reading was
actually slightly misleading.. and so it took considerably
longer than in an ideal case to solve the situation.

Indeed, all the e-mails sent to <something>@r-project.org have
to be resent by the original senders.

We are very sorry for this grave mishap.
