It was submitted Sunday evening CET, so if we are lucky, the source will
get to CRAN on Monday, and the Windows binary package will be built
automatically about midday Tuesday CET.
The current source is on the Sourceforge r-spatial project, module
spgrass6. I've put an unofficial Windows binary on:
if anybody would like to risk trying it. I think that there are still
issues to be resolved, because R Windows system() is probably unaware that
it is talking to MSYS on a bash shell, rather than an unadorned Windows
command prompt. So far, quoting and paths seem fragile, but the examples
I'd be grateful for feedback. If we need any improvements before FOSS4G,
that should be OK, but best for a specific QGIS public release to avoid
any "moving target" issues.
