The two I want most are RStudio (desktop and server) and R Commander.
exist in RPM form but the packages are made via 'cmake' rather
than by Fedora's process, and the server's using the old school /etc/init.d
rather than systemd. R Commander's much easier - you just have to package
it's dependencies and deploy its desktop file.
When I get the time to work on a long-term project I may take a shot at
COPR. OpenSUSE Build Service has source RPMs for RStudio but
they're many revisions old and seem to be unmaintained.
I don't have a personal interest in RStudio, but I do support users that
rave about it. While not entirely enthusiastic about taking on packages
when I don't have much experience using the software, it wouldn't be so bad
to get things rolling with a comaintainer that does have that experience.
Bonus, its one more thing to check off my "We can't use Linux because...."
What do you say, Ed? If I get the package review done, will you help with
bugs and maintenance?
