Description Alex Lancaster 2006-01-01 16:13:34 EST

Description of problem:
Releases of R should be co-ordinated with other dependent packages. Case in point: the upgrade of R to 2.2.1 breaks the rpy package (bug #176762), and there maybe others.  Unfortunately rpy doesn't have an explicit dependency on a particular R version so it makes it a bit difficult to know this dependency or check it automatically (it probably should be added), but rpy will fail at runtime.  This bug is a tracker for other R version dependent packages and to bring it to the R maintainer's notice that co-ordination with dependent packages is required to avoid breakage.

To help manage issues like this, I've created a mailing list: fedora-r-devel-list

Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2006-04-07 16:25:54 EDT
Any reason that the archives for this list aren't public?
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2006-04-07 16:35:36 EDT
Oversight? :) Should be public now.
