Dear useRs,

This is to announce that the maintainers of the various distributions have decided to provide "experimental" up-to-date versions of the following R related packages on Debian stable and Ubuntu (i386 and amd64 architectures):

	python-rpy    (not on Ubuntu Dapper)
	python-rpy-doc (not on Ubuntu Dapper)

By "experimental" we mostly mean that support for these packages may remain somewhat of a moving target for some time. The maintainers are not necessarily users of these packages themselves, so positive and negative feedback through the usual channels (see below) would be appreciated.

See the Debian and Ubuntu README files on CRAN for more details:


This message is CCd to r-help to reach as wide an audience as possible, but we remind that the best place to report problems with these packages or to ask R questions specific to Debian and Ubuntu is the R-SIG-Debian mailing list. See


for more information.
