R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics,
providing a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques (linear and
nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis, classification,
clustering, and so on).
PostgreSQL is an open source SQL database server.
This package provides a procedural language interface to R from
PostgreSQL. Procedural languages are used to write functions
which can be called in database queries.

2014-09-05 - Christoph Berg <>
plr (1: UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
* Work around missing /usr/lib/ on lucid. Code was already
present in debian/postinst, but not installed into all binaries.
Patch by Robert Stone, thanks!
2014-07-25 - Christoph Berg <>
plr (1: unstable; urgency=medium
* Upload to unstable for 9.4.
2014-07-05 - Christoph Berg <>
plr (1: experimental; urgency=medium
* B-D on pg-common >= 158~ in experimental (9.3+9.4).
* Drop quilt B-D.
* Set team as maintainer.

[ Martin Pitt ]
* Add postgresql-server-dev-all and pkg-config test dependencies as the test
uses pg_buildext and pkg-config.
* debian/tests/installcheck: Temporarily modify test script to use CREATE
EXTENSION instead of sourcing the build tree's plr.psql. We want to test
the installed package and avoid building.
[ Christoph Berg ]
* Add expected/plr_1.out to catch the 8.4 test results.
2013-08-16 - Christoph Berg <>
plr (1: unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version.
* Use "8.4+" in debian/pgversions and B-D on postgresql-server-dev-all
>= 148.  Closes: #725572.
2013-03-31 - Christoph Berg <>
plr (1: experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream version.

plr (1: experimental; urgency=low
[ Andreas Tille ]
* debian/control[.in]
- Fixed Vcs fields
- Standards-Version: 3.9.3 (no changes needed)
[ Christoph Berg ]
* New upstream version.
* Add autopkgtest regression test. (Expected failure on 8.4.)
* debian/pgversions: Add 9.2 and 9.3.
* debian/rules: Use system pg_buildext again (>= 140).
2011-10-06 - Christoph Berg <>
plr (1: unstable; urgency=low
* Take over as maintainer, thanks to Andreas for the permission!
* New upstream version.
* Rewrite debian/rules to build for multiple PostgreSQL versions using
pg_buildext.  Closes: #639473
* Setting RPATH seems to be redundant, remove it
* As debian/rules doesn't set R_HOME, remove the Makefile patch around it.
2010-02-10 - Andreas Tille <>
plr (1: unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version
* Standards-Version: 3.8.4 (no changes needed)
* Versioned depends from r-base-core
Closes: #544644
* Probably because of the upstream version number the reporter of
bug #559586 assumed that the package would be related to
PostgreSQL version 8.3.  According to upstream it works with both
PostgreSQL 8.3 *and* 8.4 but the package is build to work with
version 8.4 exclusively since latest upload.
Closes: #559586
