Fedora scientific packaging

The two I want most are RStudio (desktop and server) and R Commander.
RStudio does exist in RPM form but the packages are made via 'cmake' rather
than by Fedora's process, and the server's using the old school /etc/init.d
rather than systemd. R Commander's much easier - you just have to package
it's dependencies and deploy its desktop file.

When I get the time to work on a long-term project I may take a shot at
RStudio in COPR. OpenSUSE Build Service has source RPMs for RStudio but
they're many revisions old and seem to be unmaintained.
