For Xubo Yue, who may not be aware of all of the players:

Uwe Ligges is one of the individuals who runs CRAN.  When you submit a 
package to CRAN, you are asking Uwe and others to distribute your work. 
You should listen to what he says.

Spencer Graves and I are not involved in running CRAN.  We will give you 
advice that we think is good advice, but if it conflicts with Uwe's, 
follow his.
