Do you change your Rprofile.site?


#1

It may be considered bad practice, but do you do it anyway? At work I change repos to include our local repository for internal packages.

This is something I do, too, to set a repository location for internal packages. I think that it is OK to use Rprofile.site for this purpose. My understanding is that you can run into trouble if you use it to set things like stringsAsFactors = FALSE. Interested to hear others’ thoughts.
