Thanks Duncan. How does one contact CRAN? I've looked but didn't
manage to find contact information.

In terms of the dated visual style r-project.org is in the same boat
as cran.r-project.org. A mockup of r-project.org is also available at
http://izahn.crabdance.com/~izahn/r-project-new-css/index.html. Again,
I'd appreciate comments or feedback on the proposal to modernize the
website style.
