add jsslogo.jpg to R sources?

Toby Hocking-2
Hi R-core, I was wondering if somebody could please add jsslogo.jpg to the
R sources? (as I reported yesterday in this bug)

https://bugs.r-project.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=17687

R already includes jss.cls which is the document class file for Journal of
Statistical Software. Actually, for the jss.cls file to be useful, it also
requires jsslogo.jpg in order to compile JSS articles without error.

This is an issue for me because I am writing a JSS paper that includes
figures created using tikzDevice, which I am telling to use the jss class
for computing metrics. On debian/ubuntu the R-src/share/texmf directory is
copied to /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/R, so tikzDevice is finding jss.cls in
/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/R/tex/latex/jss.cls but it is failing with a
'jsslogo not found' error -- the fix is to also include jsslogo.jpg in the
R sources (in the same directory as jss.cls).

thanks and happy new year
Toby

Why don't you just include jsslogo.jpg in your working directory?
jss.cls is included in the R sources because there are many vignettes
with the JSS style, but always *without* the logo. The logo should
only be used for actual JSS publication, so I think that the R sources
are no place for it.

Thanks, Iñaki, you are right. The motivation for including jss.cls and
jss.bst in the R sources was to facilitate turning JSS papers into
vignettes (see the FAQ at https://www.jstatsoft.org/pages/view/style) with
\documentclass[nojss]{jss}. Before jss.cls/bst were shipped along with
base R many packages shipped with their own copy which seemed like a waste
of resources and source of confusion.

When preparing new papers for submission in JSS you can also use the
"nojss" option, this is also accepted by the journal.

Hope that helps,
Achim

P.S.: Toby, if you plan on discussing an such an issue anyway, I would
recommend to wait with the bug report. Cross-posting on different channels
is always a bit of a nuisance.

hi there, thanks for the feedback, sorry about the cross-posting, and that
makes sense given the nojss option, which I was not aware of.
