Update on R 3.0.0 migration (Was: R 3.0.0 and required rebuilds of all reverse Depends: of R)

First off, let me apologize. I clearly did this the wrong way and should have
contacted -release and -devel beforehand. My bad -- I'm sorry for extra work
this created for the release managers and maintainer, particularly at this

R 3.0.0 was released on April 3 as scheduled. As usual, I built a package the
morning of, and all build daemons are current. (There was also an unrelated
bug which is why were at 3.0.0-2.)  The release team kindly put a block on
it, so it will make it into testing.  Good.

Preceding the release and following it, we have rebuilt the vast number of
"r-cran-*" packages used my R, and which do need a rebuild, plus a few
building against R such as python-rpy.  Currently, in my unstable pbuilder
chroot (and thanks to Chris for the showpkg trick)

  root@max:/# apt-cache showpkg r-base-core | grep "r-base-core 3" | wc -l      

So 127 packages are already taken care of.  On the other hand, we still have
~50 packages needing work:

  root@max:/# apt-cache showpkg r-base-core | grep "r-base-core 2" | wc -l                                                                                     52

A few of these are false positives though. Looking more closely via

   root@max:/# for p in `apt-cache showpkg r-base-core | grep "r-base-core 2" | sort | awk -F, '{print $1}'`; \
	do echo -n "$p,"; apt-cache show $p | grep Maintainer | sed -e 's/.*<//' -e 's/>$//'; done

gets us a nice little csv data set we can print in R:

R> print(todo[ order(todo[,2]), ], row.names=FALSE)

I have taken care of my two r-cran-* package, and I know littler is a false
positive.  postgresql-r may also work, same for rkward -- the _external_ R
API did not change, but the package use did.

I have CC'ed all relevant maintainer who were not already on the list and
will follow-up.  I can help and pitch in, please contact me off-list.  

Special thanks to Charles and Chris who already uploaded a number of packages

Thanks,  Dirk
