Again, the terms of the license govern the legalities. I don’t think you would need any further efforts at licensing your commentary. Screenshots or text copies would both be just copies and the appropriate citations would probably be all that were needed. I do not think your commentary or explanatory work would need to be considered FOSS or a copyleft license. There are many instances of commercial, copyrighted books that contain portions of R source code. Several businesses exist that sell accessories or packages that depend on but are not part of core R. Some of them seem to me to be skirting the line of legality but I don’t think there have been any cases brought before judicial authorities. So your plans seems completely safe and well inside accepted and legal boundaries to my understanding.

>> Any answer you get here will will have all the authority of "some guy on the Internet", but my reading of the licenses is that as long as you give proper credit that you can use any material in teaching or commercial purposes AND derivative works are likewise copy-able on an open source (FOSS) basis. You should read the LinkedIn TOS and make sure that posting there is not subject to some sort of publisher's copyright. That might be a violation fo the licensing for material copied from CRAN sources. Acknowledgment alone might not be an acceptable use. You may need to seek appropriate legal counsel or get opinions from the creators of the licensing language, since there are a variety of license.
