I am working on that.

Let consider some quick stats with "grep".

Currently, the file bioconductor.scm contains 4 packages with
'cran-uri' and git blames you. :-)

Well, the 4 commits are:

: a207bca2ad gnu: r-codedepends: Move from cran to bioconductor.
: 3a0babacdc gnu: Add r-htscluster.
: 7ed869f796 gnu: Add r-nbpseq.
: 80eb01c776 gnu: r-gkmsvm: Move to (gnu packages bioconductor).

with some comments  as

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Do you remember a special motivation?

The second point is that the file statistics.scm contains 227 packages
and 206 are cran-uri. And the file cran.scm already contains 602
packages, so it will be almost as python-xyz.scm is. Why not. Then,
this file statistics.scm will be almost empty and I propose instead to
populate the files maths.scm, python-xyz.scm.

What do you think?

It is a big move. Do you prefer
 - a commit per package, so more or less 300 commits?
 - or a commit bioconductor.scm->cran.scm, another
statistics.scm->cran.scm, bioinformatics.scm->bioconductor.scm and
bioconductor->bioinformatics.scm, etc.?

Thank you for your insights.

All the best,
