This is just a heads-up about packaging of Bioconductor. Currently
Pierre-Yves is spearheading the packaging of Bioconductor, and I'm
helping out with reviews. Initially Pierre started with the unstable
(will be 2.2):
but that's a moving target and won't be officially released until 2008
and is targeting R 3.0 (?) so we dropped back to the stable (2.1)
Unfortunately a couple of packages (R-tkWidgets and some others) from
2.2 have already made their way into Fedora, but they are only at most
1 or 2 minor releases away from 2.1, so in discussion with Tom
Callaway and Pierre-Yves on #fedora-devel, we decided to stick with
those packages but use only 2.1 releases for everything else. Once
2.2 is released we can update all packages to that then.
I'm currently working on the review of R-Biobase, the core package:
We could perhaps also create a tracker bug and make all Bioconductor
module package reviews block the tracker bug. If anybody would like
to help, let us know!
I have recently tried to learn some python through an idea that I had.
As exist the cpan2spec, I have tried to create a R2spec in python.
You can find the result of my trials there
If you have some time to test it, and if it is worth enough I could
submit it as a package...
If you think of any feature, anythings to correct in it just let me know...
Checking at my packages earlier I have seen that the URL on the cran
repository have changed.
I have updated my package to take this changed into account...
Just to let you know if you have not seen it.
