There are release candidates for R 2.6.1 that is expected to be release next
Those daily release candidates are placed here
I think that we could push those release candidates to updates-testing to
detect earlier problems. In any case we have to deal in the first push of the
new version with the dependency of rpy.
while reading the Rdevel list I found this quote from Peter Dalgaard:
"(Fedora incorporated patches in their RPM updates for a while, which I
was beginning to believe was a good idea, all things considered, but
they haven't done it (yet?) for 2.6.0.)"
