Hi Dirk,

Andreas and I are currently taking care of updating the Debian Med R packages,
starting first by the ones for which a new upstream release is available.
After this is done, I can give help to the Debian Science team, but my pace is
around two packages a day.

Have you considered asking the release team to do recompilations (binary NMU)
on the Arch: any packages that do not seem to need housekeeping work?

Have a nice day,
