Thanks to Martin Maechler, there is a new special interest group (SIG) mailing list for users of R on Fedora: http://www.fedoraproject.org

Fedora users will have noticed that RPMs for R 2.7.0 have not yet arrived through the Fedora Yum channel. This is because Fedora 9 went into feature freeze, blocking all updates, before R 2.7.0 was released.

However, this is not the only reason for the delay. The Fedora project has introduced a peer review system. Package updates must now be tested before they are pushed through to the yum repository. The RPMs for R 2.7.0 on Fedora 7, 8, and 9 are currently available on the admin site:

Fedora 9:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-4012

Fedora 8:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F8/FEDORA-2008-4059

Fedora 7:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F7/FEDORA-2008-4021

Your help is needed to push these through to the yum repository. If you are a Fedora user, please download, test and score these RPMs. You can do this as an "anonymous tester" if you wish. Once the karma score reaches 2, the package will be pushed into "stable" repository and will become available through yum.

R packages that are distributed as RPMs must also be peer reviewed. There is a version of R-Matrix that has been sitting in the testing queue for Fedora 8 since February...

If you want to do this on a regular basis, please join the R-SIG-Fedora mailing list, where future announcements on this topic will be posted. The list is also open to all discussions of interest to Fedora users.

The home page is: https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-sig-fedora

Thanks
Martyn
