<rekado>PurpleSym: I created a keypair; this is the pubkey: ssh-ed25519 AAAAC3NzaC1lZDI1NTE5AAAAIDvmUVgLm2o8YaxYGjGCooi7Fm8ugunHyWaLi4q2foQC
<PurpleSym>rekado: Thanks, added it to the guix-cran-bot GitHub account, so next time the script runs it should be able to push.
<PurpleSym>What’s your progress regarding RStudio?
<rekado>I only just finished porting my multi-version patches
<rekado>also updated a few JS packages as needed
<rekado>this week I’ll likely not make any progress on building it, though
<PurpleSym>Okay. You’re packaging v2023.03.2+454?
<rekado>actually 2022.12.0+353 first
<rekado>there are fewer changes, and I want to see if that might be enough to get the plotting pane to work with current versions of R again
<rekado>also makes it easier to port my patches
<PurpleSym>Oh, okay. I have some time on my hands and could have a look at building it.
<rekado>the goal is to move on from that version a little later
<PurpleSym>Do you have a WIP patch/branch somewhere?
<rekado>I’ll still be pretty busy until the end of next week, so there’s only going to be little progress until then
<rekado>I haven’t pushed anything yet
<rekado>it’s all in a bit of a messy state at the moment
<PurpleSym>Messy is fine with me 🙂
<rekado>gotta bike now, but I’ll try later to get something ready that I can share with you
<civodul>where's the official doc of R's sessionInfo function?
<civodul>i can't find it in the manuals at
<civodul>there's but i wonder if that's the right thing
<civodul>(and if it's "official")
<rekado>civodul: I don’t know if it’s official. Documentation in R is generally accessed with ?, e.g. “?sessionInfo”
<rekado>this is identical to what’s at
<rekado>I don’t know if there’s any online documentation
<PurpleSym>rekado: 2022.12.0+353 seems to build with minimal changes; not sure about the fancy editor yet (“builds”, but probably does not work correctly, because of version mismatches).
<PurpleSym>And I’d have to check for new/changed calls to external executables.
<rekado>oh, good
<rekado>did you change the Javascript inputs, too?
<rekado>I found that even for the currently packaged version the versions of the JS inputs aren’t always matching
<rekado>I started going through this line by line:
<civodul>i've see a report that our Julia package is 20x slower than that of some other distro
<civodul>as if it's not using AVX or something
<civodul>does that ring a bell anyone?
<rekado>we have no users of Julia here
<rekado>(this is an R stronghold)
<PurpleSym>rekado: No, haven’t changed the JavaScript inputs yet. That’s something we’d have do to though, I see lots of major version bumps.
<eroesch>Hi! It might be slightly outside of the typical remit, but if you are interested in computational reproducibility in psychology and neuroimaging, consider applying to this fellowship:
