New {renv} template in the community templetes repo

My pull request with a new template in the community contributed Renku projects repo was just merged by @rrrrrok, Thanks Rok for helping me test it and work out the issues.

This template provides more reproducible R environments through the use of the {renv} package which makes it possible to manage an R environment down to exact package versions across multiple package sources (Bioc, CRAN, & github) with relative ease.

There is also an optional feature to persist RStudio global config at a project level by setting an environment variable during the container build.

Iā€™d be happy to receive feedback from anyone using this so that further improvements can be made going forward.

Happy Holidays!
