Note the "(possibly)"; just explain the URL is correct when/if you
submitted to CRAN. I think this is may be an issue with the function used
to test the URL not being able to follow the redirect. Status codes in the
3xx block relate to redirects but I couldn't find what code 391 means...
but the URL is fine and works currently, though the recommended URL is
actually: http://www.jstor.org/stable/2983411 so you might consider
updating the URL to this one now.
