When you go to svn.r-project.org, you get a largely blank screen that has a text based graphic that says "svn.r-project.org" and a line of text that read "For more, ask Martin: maechler@R-project.org

Ah, interesting. The text for the link is just svn.r-project.org which as you note gives a less than useful page, but clicking on the link actually goes to https://svn.r-project.org/R/branches/ which has directories for the various releases -- I'll update the link text to be the whole URL.

Thanks for the heads up!
