[R-sig-Debian] Why is rstudio not in Ubuntu repo or PPA?

As for non-manual updates, I have been using two scripts for a few years:


They are part of the littler package (in Debian and Ubuntu, and on CRAN) and
get tweaked / updated as the base URLs change.  Currently hardwired for the
system I use (Ubuntu, amd64) but easy to generalize.

That said, a PPA would be preferable as apt and friends are of course
perfectly capable to 'sort' among available versions, download and install.
