Hi Anna,

Interesting, I've never heard of a publication editor insisting on a 
physical place for a software citation. I've also always used the 
citation function, I think everyone does because that's what it's 
designed for. I checked the citations of several well-developed and 
well-supported packages and they all use the same template. You might 
push back on the production office and say the URL is the "place".  If 
they're stubborn about listing a geographic place, I think the R-Forge 
servers / admin are housed at Vienna University of Economics and 
Business <http://www.wu.ac.at/> (see logos at bottom of 
https://r-forge.r-project.org). But in the digital age that's a really 
silly way to cite open-source software. Good luck. Andy
