== Debian BioConductor archive ==
The [http://alioth.debian.org/projects/pkg-bioc/ Alioth pkg-bioc] is preparing a repository for Debian packages for the BioConductor collection of R libraries.

The [http://alioth.debian.org/projects/pkg-bioc/ Alioth pkg-bioc] is working on a
repository for Debian packages
of the R libraries at BioConductor (http://www.bioconductor.org).
More information is found on the Wiki page to AliothPkgBioc.

The general idea is that upstream's (the BioConductor developers's) install scripts are not aware of the respective Linux distribution and do now know how to install those libraries external to CRAN that are required for the compilation. Some other bits require manual intervention, i.e. for the integration with web servers.

You will need about 10Go just for building the BIOC packages.

'''Be carefull : it's better to do everything in a Chroot/Vserver/Xen'''

The following steps are required to prepare all BioConductor packages:

1. Prepare local Debian installation: {{{
aptitude install libapt-pkg-perl libdbd-sqlite3-perl r-base-core r-base-dev debhelper cdbs devscripts cvs

2. Create an empty directory and cd in it.

3. Checkout the pkg-bioc's ''tools'' module via CVS, either
 * anonymously without account on alioth.debian.org{{{
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.alioth.debian.org:/cvsroot/pkg-bioc co tools
 * or (preferred) with one's on alioth.debian.org{{{
export CVS_RSH=ssh
cvs -d :ext:developername@cvs.alioth.debian.org:/cvsroot/pkg-bioc checkout tools
}}} Only this second route allows the contribution to the project.

4. Preparations for the packaging script: execute the r_pkg_prepare.sh with the right option. It will prepare
 * the directories : create a source,build directories and a directory for the changelogs to be passed across builds
 * download the packages from CRAN. It retrieves the top-level files as well as the Descriptions dir and nothing else.

 * on US side{{{
cd tools && sh ./r_pkg_prepare.sh --create-bioc --us
 * on Europe side (currently Germany){{{
cd tools && sh ./r_pkg_prepare.sh --create-bioc --eu
}}} For later runs only just change to that directory.

5. get the files from the upstream repositories onto your local disk
nohup ./r_pkg_update.pl --doupdate &
Get a coffee, install ["BOINC"] at your local machine, tell a colleague or friend about BOINC, browse the source of the scripts you have just use, improve them or this Wiki page.

6. go to the freshly created directory bioc
cd ../bioc

7. Compilation

==== cran2deb Options ====
perl cran2deb.pl --help

cran2deb -- Convert R packages from CRAN/BioConductor into Debian packages

    cran2deb [options]

    --help show this help
    --verbose more verbose operation
    --debug even more verbose for debugging purposes
    --dryrun only simulate but don't build
    --dbname specify filename of database to read/store permanent info.
                           The data should be shared between repositories (set to 'database')
    --binarch arch binary architecture
    --subset regexp regular expression to match package name (set to '')
    --repository path repository
    --changelobdbdir path changelogdb directory
    --overwrite build if debian package is found in build directory
    --spotChangesToScript rebuild package if change to this script was detected
                           (set to '0')
    --ignore ignore build errors (for running over night)
    --keepPatchedSource do not removed the source directory (set to '')

    --displayknown display the entries already in the DB
    --skipTestOnInstalledBuildDependencies (set to '0')
                           If set, the build dependencies are not checked for their installation.
    --installRequiredPackages (set to 'echo', can be 'echo' or 'sudo')
                           If test on installed packages is not skipped, then this routine
                           will find ways to install the missing packages. If set to echo, the
                           routine will only declare to execute a command for package
                           installation but not perform such.

== Separate Scripts ==

=== findMissingDebs.sh ===

Run within or above the ''builds'' folder. It will give you an output like the following: {{{
Attempted to package:
:-( package affycoretools_1.7.7 not successfully packaged.
:-( package applera_1.5.0 not successfully packaged.
:-( package beadarraysnp_1.1.10 not successfully packaged.
:-( package beadexplorer_1.1.3 not successfully packaged.
:-( package biostrings_2.3.7 not successfully packaged.
:-( package bufferedmatrix_0.1.27 not successfully packaged.
:-( package bufferedmatrixmethods_0.1.1 not successfully packaged.
:-( package cellhts_1.5.8 not successfully packaged.
:-( package isnetwork_1.4.0 not successfully packaged.
:-( package pathrender_1.2.0 not successfully packaged.
:-( package prada_1.11.4 not successfully packaged.
:-( package stam_1.7.0 not successfully packaged.
:-( package tilingarray_1.13.3 not successfully packaged.
:-( package weaver_1.0.1 not successfully packaged.
:-( package widgetinvoke_1.7.0 not successfully packaged.

Implemented only for ''bioc'': The first argument "sources" will inspect the sources folder for those .tar.gz files that where not even attempted to be built.

=== orig2debSource.sh ===

Given a set of .log files as an argument, this script practically reverses the deletion of the source directory after a failed build.

The tool indicates packages that are outdated and should be removed.
