so the question is, where did the older 3.0.x version you want get 
installed from?

`rpm -qi R-core`   should provide the repo info on the systems with the 
earlier version, similar to...

# yum info R-core
Name        : R-core
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 3.1.0
Release     : 5.el6

Repo        : epel

Description : A language and environment for statistical computing and 
             : R is similar to the award-winning S system, which was 
developed at
             : Bell Laboratories by John Chambers et al. It provides a wide
             : variety of statistical and graphical techniques (linear and
             : nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis,
             : classification, clustering, ...).
             : R is designed as a true computer language with control-flow
             : constructions for iteration and alternation, and it 
allows users to
             : add additional functionality by defining new functions. For
             : computationally intensive tasks, C, C++ and Fortran code 
can be linked
             : and called at run time.
