The RStudio server pro admin guide (section 5.10.1) mentions changing the default user library to ~/R/library so that it is not R version specific. Are there any downsides to doing this? Can I do the same thing on a local installation of R (i.e. remove the version from my package library path so I don't have to re-install packages each time I upgrade to a new version of R)?
