So I pat and hope for the best ...
and am happy to have used ghrr as additional repo for my CRAN submission.
CRAN agrees and has accepted wikipediatrend with ghrr as an additional
non-mainstream package-repo. Thanks again.
I think having one additional repo for packages that are on GitHub but not
on CRAN is a splendid idea and the word about ghrr shall be spread loud
and wide. Great work.
My personal drat repo then will remain for personal toolkit delivery.
