more robust error handling for install2.r #50
install2.r has long had the option
This patch provides a more robust approach to error when a package fails to install, but not simply error on any possible warning (as it does currently). This involves no change to the user interface of install2.r
Making this more robust is good. Medium-term we're good too because drat just calls out to the base tools to create indices which, if you use R 3.4.0 or later, will write PACKAGES.rds for you.
But that doesn't fix old repos, not does it help for older install. Will review the PR when I have moment or two and also think I should get a littler update out ...
