maybe I could change the tool, which is not mine, and which I don't want to
maintain to use a specific R-version that is already available on our cluster
which I can put into my path with "module load R/3.1.0-devel" (
there even is a requirements in the wrapper which is not fulfilled (these
versions are not available at the moment) and still it installed without
<requirement type="R-module" version="3.5.27">edgeR</requirement>
<requirement type="R-module" version="3.18.13">limma</requirement>
This requirements tags looks also rather inflexible to me. With an additional
level of user configurable indirection it would be possible to make the tools
fit to different infrastructures without having to use binaries provided by
somebody else, taking up space for just one tool etc...
Currently for jobs that are not run locally there is a general
environment_setup_file. There could be one optional environment_setup_file for
every job (or destination).
In the end I created yet another wrapper.
