How to install packages from GitHubb

Patrick Connolly-4

Running the train function from the latest version of the caret
package on CRAN fails with this message:

 unable to find variable "optimismBoot"
The purported workaround is to use
devtools::install_github('topepo/caret/pkg/caret') to get  the development version.

However, that evidently has the same problem with southern hemisphere
timezones that install.packages() does -- via download.packages().
i.e. it hangs.  The workaround with that one is to use method =
"internal". What is the  equivalent for install_github()?
