Motivation for this change
Things done

The package download URL defined in r-modules/default.nix is missing a folder. Earlier it was like this:${package}_${version}.tar.gz

However, now, the server changed its URL schema to${package}/{package}_${version}.tar.gz

which resulted in the following error when building R packages

builder for '/nix/store/7y3lkisqkz46mbgqk7bizx32lqrzwj6c-INSPEcT_1.18.0.tar.gz.drv' failed with exit code 1; last 10 log lines:

  curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 80: Connection refused

Manually looking at the structure of the server files (just open confirms what I write above.
(The server address is defined (and taken from) mirrors.nix btw.)

This PR fixes this by adding the new schema, also keeping the old one for compatibility (e.g. I don't know if all R mirror servers changed the schema).

  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
