[R-sig-Debian] R 2.5.0 in Debian unstable

I just uploaded R 2.5.0 to Debian's unstable distribution.  As Peter's
announcement says, it now contains two new packages'rcompgen' and

About two or three weeks ago, I also packaged these, just like other
'recommended' packages as r-cran-rcompgen and r-cran-codetools. However, as
"new" packages, they are still in the NEW queue awaiting inclusion into
Debian.  If you find rcompgen and/or codetools lacking, I'd recommend a
direct installation via install.packages() from inside R 2.5.0 until the
packages hit out mirror.

Feedback, questions, ... welcome.

Best regards, Dirk
