I want to use the devel container to build R packages... the problem is since the bioconductor/devel containers are based on rocker/rstudio containers, they lack some of the pdf tools in the rocker/r-devel containers... so R CMD check fails as lacking things like qpdf, pdflatex, etc.
So, a suggestion -- should the devel containers be instead based on the rocker/r-devel image?
Or is there a better way to do bioconductor development in a docker container? (so far I've build my own docker images).
I've added the packages needed to build a latex vignette to the devel_base image. pandoc is already present (bundled with RStudio) to support markdown vignettes. The images that are based on devel_base will include these packages next time they build (within 24 hours).
