the user having to check dependencies across 2 different package management
systems, there could a command to create dummy rpms for manually built CRAN
packages. These could be "installed" so they would be used by rpm to resolve
dependencies in pre-built Fedora rpms.
Would make a fake/dummy RPM be any better than directly package the RPM ?
I don't think it decrease the amount of work :/
Or we need something that add the entry to rpmdb while we set up a
package using R. But then what about the package installed in
Two users will not have the same libraries available while the database
will say that the library is installed.
I know I bring more questions than answers here, but I don't what the
best solution would be.
