<PurpleSym>r-gganimate is not in Guix yet, because it’s nonfree?
<rekado_>it’s Expat-licensed AFAICT
<PurpleSym>rekado_: That’s what the package metadata says, but LICENSE just says
<PurpleSym>YEAR: 2017
<PurpleSym>COPYRIGHT HOLDER: Thomas Lin Pedersen
<PurpleSym>No license header in any file. Can we rely on just package metadata?
<rekado_>this is pretty common
<rekado_>the LICENSE file further specifies the license declaration in DESCRIPTION
<rekado_>DESCRIPTION says “MIT + License”, which is a common idiom.
<PurpleSym>Okay, I’m not familiar with the R universe. I’ll add gganimate to guix proper then.
<civodul>hey zimoun!
<zimoun>I am attending a remote webminar about SWH by BioInfo folks. Interesting how they explain. :-)
<zimoun>arf, again and again swhid ;-)
<zimoun>civodul: about LAPACK vs OpenBLAS and Julia, probably because it is listed in the requirements <>. BTW, I do not know about SuiteSparse which depends on lapack. And SuiteSparse is a dependency of Julia.
<civodul>zimoun: i'm trying to get suitesparse built against openblas right now :-)
<civodul>let's bring order to this mess!
<civodul>for Julia, we'll need to investigate
<civodul>it's surprising that it really needs both
<zimoun>cool! I will try to build Julia without lapack and only openblas. Let clean the mess for Julia v1.6 which is not fully ready, IMHO.
<civodul>that'd be great
<civodul>suitesparse -> ✅
<zimoun>I am back from holidays (sadly) so ready to tackle work. ;-)
<civodul>heh :)
