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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See bug #176762
To help manage issues like this, I've created a mailing list: fedora-r-devel-list
Any reason that the archives for this list aren't public?
Oversight? :) Should be public now.
