(You probably also need the appropriate developer permission.) Beware
that R-forge needs to indicate the package build status is current,
but also, if you have just made svn updates it may falsely indicate
current. Check the revision number is accurate, or wait a couple of
days, or submit "by hand".
If you do submit by ftp to incoming, beware that the CRAN policy now
requires that your email state that you have read and agree with the
CRAN policies. (Probably everyone else noticed that, but there is no
need for others to generate extra work for CRAN maintainers, like I
have just done.)
... and like I did also.
I still think it would be good to look for grant money or to
encourage donations by at least offering to provide an invoice to those
(like Jim Ramsay) who have grant money and can pay an invoice but can't
make contributions! If done in the right way, more money could make
life easier for the current CRAN maintainers, thereby giving them more
time to develop new statistical algorithms, because they would no longer
need as much time to maintain a database that is growing not quite

Is there a mechanism on R-forge for updating an existing CRAN
package, analogous to the 'submit to cran' link on the R-forge
package page, or should I just follow the instructions athttp://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/policies.html
for FTP upload?
If there were a "Submit to CRAN" button, that would be the method. But
I think that button has gone away, so the description on that page is
the way to go.
The "Submit to CRAN" button on that page is hidden by default but
is exposed by clicking on the "Show/Hide extra info" button right below
where it gives "Build Status" and "R install command". (I had trouble
finding the "Submit to CRAN" button for a while after it became hidden.
You need "Build status: Current". Also, at least the for last
submissions I made, the CRAN maintainers did NOT accept updates if there
were Warnings or Notes in the "Package Checks"; these warnings are also
hidden until you click "Show/Hide extra info".)
