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!
