It’s been a long wait, but it’s almost over… Ever felt like you started a term paper over and over? Never really getting the mojo to finish it? That’s how I felt creating an ubuntu package for rApache. They should be available in a few hours on launchpad.net, i386 and amd64 at least. Here’s the sources.list entries:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jeffreyhorner/rapache/ubuntu lucid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/jeffreyhorner/rapache/ubuntu lucid main

and check out apt-cache show libapache2-mod-rstats!

$ apt-cache show libapache2-mod-rstats

Description: Apache module for running server-side R programs
 This package provides the R module for the Apache 2 webserver. Note
 that it will work with either Apache's prefork or worker MPM. Prefork
 is preferred.
 .
 R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.
 By embedding R inside Apache, developers can create dynamic web pages and
 graphics.  Even more compelling is the ability for developers to provide
 web service style access to novel, cutting edge statistical techniques.
