R package not available on R-Forge?

Apparently it is still the case that some R packages on R-Forge are unavailable for download. For instance, the package Austin to calculate Wordscores and Wordfish has no download candidate for Windows. Does that mean Windows users cannot run Wordscores using R? Far from it, they just have to compile the package themselves. This might sound a bit scary, but is actually quite easy if you follow the instructions I have posted over a year ago.
