R on Debian

The R community tends update all their packages to the newest stable versions of R.

There may be a way to get them to work on older versions, but it probably involves version locking the packages in a way that I don't currently know about.

To put a 3.2.3 stable version of R onto Debian stable:

Add to etc/apt/sources.list: deb jessie-cran3
