Hi Robin,
Great to hear of your interest in the use of OSGeo-Live. I'd encourage 
you to add an entry about it here: 

Regarding including RStudio, from your description, it sounds like it 
would be a good addition. We are too late to include it in the next 9.0 
release, however it could potentially be included in 9.5.

The process for adding a new project is described here:

Further to that description, I'd be interested to hear advise on whether 
RStudio should be included as a separate application to R, or whether 
the R Project Overview and Quickstart should be extended to also cover 

Warm regards, Cameron
