It’s on my list to eventually package a more recent version of Rstudio.
I’ve been using the older version for quite some time at the institute,
but it’s possible that with recent upgrades to Guix the package no
longer builds.

One obstacle to adding RStudio to Guix is that Java to JavaScript
compiler that hasn’t been packaged yet.  In my package definition we’re
using the prebuilt Jar as a blob.

I won’t be able to work on this soon (probably not before March), but I
can lend a hand to whoever would like to package RStudio now.
