It seems to be a promising IDE for Gnu R, so it would be nice
having it packetized in Debian (IMHO).

Subject: Any Progress with RStudio?
Date: Tue, 19 Jun 2012 12:11:32 -0400
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Any progress to report on getting RStudio in Debian? The software has
a full debian/ directory and well functioning debs available on the
website so I wonder what the hold up is. If we think its unlikely that
others will get to it, mayb ewe can switch it back to an RFP or I can
help look into doing the upload.

In any case, the software is great and some people I'm working with
are using it extensively. I'd love to know if I could help!

Regards,
Mako

Indeed, R studio is probably one of the important packages related to R that
is missing from our archives and, to avoid "holding a lock forever", I just
went ahead and retitled this from a RFP to an ITP.

If there is indeed interest in packaging R Studio, Lifeng, can you say so?
The last public activity from yours was making this bug an ITP on 12 Oct
2012, which soon will be 12 months old.

I am sure that other people (Mako?, Dirk?) may want to sponsor packages that
you have ready, if you have them.

If my renaming was in error, just go ahead and change it back, but, please,
keep the bug updated with news/progress on the packaging effort. Getting the
package to be team-maintained is helpful if one can't cope with upload in a
timely fashion.


Regards from someone that would love to have this in Debian.

P.S.: I am willing to lend a hand in packaging, but I already have my hands
full of packages and would not be the sole maintainer of such a package.

A short answer is "yes", but ...

IMHO, the most difficult part to get rstudio in Debian official
archive is that rstudio build-depends on several (5 or so) Java
packages missing in Debian. The upstream approach is to ship them as
convenient libraries in binary package, which is unreasonable for
Debian official package, and it's quite a lot of nontrivial work to
package them first.  For example, one of them is gwt, a large complex
Java library once in unstable removed recently due to grave bugs.



Regards,
Lifeng

Really? I am pretty good friends with the RStudio team, and know them as
hard-core C++-ers.  There are (were?) newer Qt parts, Boost parts, ... in
there but I'd be very surprised to find Java.

[ And yes, it remains a very large and complicated package. I have no
capacity to help, sorry. ]

Checked with upstream over IM, and yes, they do use Java to generate 300k of
Javascript.  So GWT is used for that.

JJ also mentioned that they need to upgrade to Qt 5.1.1 which entail a number
of changes; probably not worth packaging before that.  

The 0.99 release may be a good starting point at which they plan to update
their dependencies.  So wait and see..
