I am writing this from Dortmund, at the useR! 2008 conference
I will have a talk tomorrow about the interaction between R and Fedora. It is
a 15 minutes session so there is not much time to expand. I will present
Fedora and it interacts with R. There are several issues that are common to
the relation between Fedora and languages like perl, python, latex or R.
I will also take the opportunity to hear feedback from several types of users
regarding the state of R in Fedora. If there is anything relevant I will
report back to this list.
I have asked pingou (I hope I can use this) to write to the list with the new
releases of his package as it would be nice that package automatically in
Fedora using yum.
PS: In case you are wondering why I took so long to send this message to the
list, believe that it is a long story that involves time shortage. :-)
