Subject: RFP: cran2deb -- Automate conversion of CRAN R packages into Debian packages
Date: Fri, 14 Jan 2011 23:56:39 -0800
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist


Debian packages of CRAN packages of R code offer
at least two advantages: better dependencies and
updates.

Please package the cran2deb scripts at

    https://r-forge.r-project.org/projects/cran2deb/

It seems to me that this might make it easier for
Debian users to upgrade Debian's R CRAN packages
ourselves, instead of bugging you.

Thanks,
Kingsley
