looks like this has finished now, there's now 10.852 packages for R 3.5 and 
the "don't use this repo, it will break things" message was removed. i can now 
build debian plugin packages for R 3.5, but it will probably not happen before 
next week. it's a bit more complicated because i'll have to set up a new repo 
for those packages as well (roxyPackage can do that, it's just a config 

if you're not using those anyway, but want to run RKWard with R 3.5 on ubuntu 
already, here's a step-by-step manual:

 ## R 3.5 base packages
 # - remove/deactivate your current CRAN mirror!
 # - add R 3.5 PPA
 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:marutter/rrutter3.5

 ## optional: CRAN R packages in debian format
 # - remove current c2d4u
 sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/marutter-c2d4u-*
 # - add c2d4u3.5 PPA
 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:marutter/c2d4u3.5

 ## RKWard for R 3.5 (example: daily builds for KF5 with backports)
 # - remove current RKWard PPA
 sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rkward-devel-ubuntu-rkward-kf5-backports-
 # - add RKWard for R 3.5 PPA
 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rkward-devel/rkward-kf5-backports-daily-r35

 ## do the upgrade
 # - fetch new packages
 sudo apt update
 # - on my machine, RKWard was not upgraded because of different build
 #   times of the PPAs, so it's best to manually re-install the package
 sudo apt remove rkward
 # - upgrade packages
 sudo apt full-upgrade
 sudo apt install rkward
 sudo apt autoremove
