**To**:**tech-pkg <tech-pkg%netbsd.org@localhost>****Subject**:**unusual R packages****From**:**Brook Milligan <brook%nmsu.edu@localhost>**- Date: Wed, 26 Jun 2019 21:18:03 -0600

I have been looking at the set of R packages in pkgsrc and have discovered that there are what appear to be needless differences in organization. For example, a small minority (see the list in the attached file) define DISTNAME and use BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.R directly. The attached file (from converters/R-base64enc) is one example. In contrast, most R packages set R_PKGNAME and R_PKGVER, and are otherwise very stylized. The attached file (adapted for converters/R-base64enc) illustrates the typical style. I have verified that in this particular case, the second, more typical, version works fine. Is there a reason not to update the set of these atypical packages (19 of 151 R packages) to follow the typical pattern? Does anyone know why these packages differ from the norm? Cheers, Brook
