Is it possible to publish a Script tool that uses the RPy/RPy2 module (or more generally any Python-to-R link) to ArcGIS Server 10 SP2? If so, what specifically do I need to do, i.e. Install R on the server machine(s). Thanks.

An answer to your own question is perfectly acceptable. – Paul Hiemstra Dec 18 '11 at 10:23
I changed it to an answer, but should I re-post the code and workflow from the document so that it is available on GIS.SE? The link in the future may not be available. – Baskinomics Dec 18 '11 at 15:59
I think it would be nice to add not only a link, but also a short summary of your findings. – Paul Hiemstra Dec 18 '11 at 20:35

Some extensive searching has yielded exactly what I was looking for. See Here. Originally obtained from here.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

This link is off ! can you re post the good link ? – Mounirsky Mar 27 '14 at 10:11
Please don't just post links but include the main ideas into your answer. This is the only way to insure that your answers don't suffer "link rot". – underdark Mar 27 '14 at 11:37
