Do you intend to package this as r-cran-gstat, in-line with the numerous other
R packages based on CRAN sources?
I'm just asking as gstat is also part of CRAN, e.g. can be found on
http://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/ and its mirrros. We have a
never-quite-finalized Debian R Policy draft that several of us adhere
to, and that we plan to expand -- i.e. we're working on getting all of
CRAN auto-built (and apt-get'able, though not necessarily inside Debian
as adding 500+ packages may be madness).
Feel free to follow-up off-line if you have questions.
