Hi, dropping the CCs. I don't think Jeremy and Nicolás will care about this part of the discussion.

Should be solved, now.

The external plugins repo is live at https://github.com/rkward-community/external-plugins and ready for use.

Well, the one thing going for CRAN is that we're including it as a repo, anyway. But yes, we should definitely have at least a fallback in place, and if we need a fallback, then there's little gain in using CRAN, in addition. Except, just a thought, CRAN _could_ be an interesting option while transitioning (whenever that becomes current). Regards Thomas
