    Hi r-sig-ME-ers,

    I'm running a glmmADMB model with a single random effect, zero
    and a negative binomial distribution (session info below).  The
    model seems
    to run fine on its own (i.e. no error message, sensible outcome,

    ..I found the link to the "Buildbot page" was broken...


    A google search for "glmmADMB buildbot page" did not uncover any obvious
    alternate locations for the various OS compatible binaries.
