[R-sig-ME] No functions in the glmmADMB package?

  The inability to install the package from r-forge is because
(probably) I forgot to update the repository structure since R 3.4.x
came out (binary packages are organized by major R release).

  When you downloaded the .zip file how did you install it?  If it was
really "from source", that wouldn't work (but I would think
install.packages(<zip file>, repos=NULL) should work.

  Did you remember library(glmmADMB) ?

  What does help(package=glmmADMB) say?

  Also: at present I'd recommend glmmTMB (on CRAN) as a better (same
capabilities or more, very similar interface, faster, more stable,
better maintained going forward) over glmmADMB.
