How to install packages from bodhi?

I'd like to install R-3.5, which right now hasn't arrived into the main F28 repo.

I found this page, which seems to contain all the relevant RPMs. It looks like I could download them from there, but there are too many packages to download manually one-by-one. Can I somehow add them as a repo?

These packages are available in updates-testing

$ dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing --showduplicates list R-core
Last metadata expiration check: 0:01:18 ago on Fri 25 May 2018 10:31:09 CEST.
Available Packages
R-core.i686            3.4.4-1.fc28       fedora         
R-core.x86_64          3.4.4-1.fc28       fedora         
R-core.i686            3.5.0-1.fc28       updates-testing
R-core.x86_64          3.5.0-1.fc28       updates-testing

The packages from updates-testing comes without warranty, so they may or may not work.

Terrific, thanks! For the record, I used this command: dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing install R-3.5.0. (Simple dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing install R refuses to update R.)

dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing update R

dnf install R does not do anything if R is already installed.

If you are really impatient and your package hasn't yet hit updates-testing you can download it from koji , Fedora building system. Succesfully built packages from koji end up to updates-testing in bodhi first and then as regular updates.
