Thanks for the update and I can certainly understand the issues behind
retaining control and liabilities.

Your last comment also helps as I continue to experience no problems
with the RH 8.0 version of 1.6.0 that I am presently using.

If it would be of help in the mean time, if anyone using RH 8.0 has any
questions regarding creating the R 1.6.0 RPM from the SRPM on CRAN using
their own system, I'd be happy to answer questions.

Best regards,
