R-package-devel -- User R Packages Development


About R-package-devel
English (USA)

This list is to get help about package development in R. The goal of the list is to provide a forum for learning about the package development process. We hope to build a community of R package developers who can help each other solve problems, and reduce some of the burden on the CRAN maintainers. If you are having problems developing a package or passing R CMD check, this is the place to ask!

Please note that while R-package-devel contributors will do their best to provide you accurate and authoritative information, the final arbiters of CRAN submission is the CRAN team.

  • Please keep it civil. It's easy to get frustrated when building a package, or when answering the same question for what feels like the thousandth time. But everyone involved in the process is a volunteer.
  • Include a reproducible example. We can't help if we don't know what the problem is. For packages, if possible, include a link to the package source. If you're having a problem with R CMD check, include the relevant message inline.
  • If you're in violation of this code, one of the moderators will send you a gentle admonishment off-list.
    For more about such "Netiquette", read the Debian code of conduct.

Note that there may be some overlap of topics with the R-devel mailing list notably as before the existence of R-package-devel, many package developers have used R-devel for questions that are now meant to be asked on this list. Beware that cross-posting, i.e., posting to both, is generally considered as impolite with rare exceptions, e.g., if a thread is being moved from one list to the other for good reasons.

You have to be a subscriber to the list in order to post any message. Even then, your first messages are only posted after one manual moderator approvement.
