Notes about issue randomness_in_r_rdb_rds_databases in unstable

Identifier: randomness_in_r_rdb_rds_databases
Suites: testing / unstable / experimental
Description: R creates .rdb files and .rds with some randomness. They are a serialisation of some
sorts, related to lazy loading of modules?
Randomness seems to come from using absolute paths in .rd[bs] files.
.
Is not related to https://bugs.debian.org/774031 / r_base_appends_built_header_to_description_files
.
Probably from this code https://sources.debian.net/src/r-base/3.3.3-1/src/library/tools/R/makeLazyLoad.R/#L258
which calls into here https://sources.debian.net/src/r-base/3.3.3-1/src/library/base/R/namespace.R/#L249

Our notes about issues affecting packages are stored in notes.git and are targeted at packages in Debian in 'unstable/amd64' (unless they say otherwise).

A package name displayed with a bold font is an indication that this package has a note. Visited packages are linked in green, those which have not been visited are linked in blue.
A # sign after the name of a package indicates that a bug is filed against it. Likewise, a + sign indicates there is a patch available, a P means a pending bug while # indicates a closed bug. In cases of several bugs, the symbol is repeated.
