Description Paul Smith 2008-05-15 12:56:34 EDT
R 2.7.0 was released on April 22, 2008. Why such a long delay to get the
respective Fedora rpms?

Many thanks,

Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-05-15 13:26:36 EDT
Because I couldn't break the freeze to enable R 2.7.0 (it came in just after we
froze), and I didn't want to break upgrades by pushing it to F-7 or F-8. It went
into rawhide a while back, and I just finished pushing updates today for all the
active releases:


Please test and give karma, so they will move from testing into stable. :)

Thanks, Tom. Now I understand why it has taken so long to get Fedora rpms for R. 

I am trying to install your 


but getting

I don't know if I'm allowed to give karma, but I tested this on a fresh install
of Fedora 9 (i386) and everything worked so far as I can tell.  I am able to
update the R packages, install packages from source, etc.  I got everything
except the "debug" packages.

It seems to work fine here too.
