[R-SIG-Mac] R.app Package Mgr Bug

Just a thought, but what if you overload the defunct function in your .Globalenv ?

.find.package<-function(package, lib.loc = NULL, quiet = FALSE,
             verbose = getOption("verbose") )  find.package(package, lib.loc , quiet,  verbose) 

I don't know whether that workaround will be "recognized" by the package manager.

I see this too, on both mavericks and ordinary mac build of R.app Its because R 3.1.0 has made ".find.package" a defunct function We'll need to wait for the R.app developers to change the code behind the package manager to use "find.package" instead of ".find.package"
Hopefully it'll be a simple fix
