Thanks to Martyn, it is available from CRAN mirrors, such as:


If you want to add a CRAN mirror to your yum list of repos, see:


It would appear that 2.8.0 is not yet in Koji, which is the Fedora build
system. Given the Fedora Karma system, it can be at least a couple of
weeks after it is available there:


It would then show up in Bodhi:


where folks can test the RPM and bump the Karma to push it to release.

I am guessing that there might be a delay in availability due to the
activity surrounding the very recent discussion on the consolidation of
R and R-devel to facilitate the installation of CRAN source code
packages, but would defer to Tom on that.
