ok, if no one objects, i'll delete them within the next few days.

well, it also reminds me of an old issue i posted here back in may: the 
servers "racnoss" and "depot" are no longer around -- at least i get

 Could not resolve hostname racnoss.kde.org: Name or service not known

meaning i can't upload any plugin packages for R 3.6 (or any other version, 
for that matter). can you confirm this?

it's not an urgent issue.

i was really positively surprised about the smooth installation, RKWard 
quickly replaced RStudio on that student's laptop after we discovered that 
RStudio internally seems to do something strange with system() calls, to the 
extent that koRpus is literally useless for POS tagging (worked both in plain 
R and RKWard, where RStudio reliably produced "error 255"). i ran into this 
during a workshop with windows users, too. one participant had to run RStudio 
with admin privileges to successfully tag anything. very strange.
