[R-pkg-devel] What constitutes insufficient merit of an r package?

When submitting a package to the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN),
one requirement for eventual acceptance is novelty of the package and its
workings (i.e., functions, etc.).

That is, a package's contribution cannot be trivial.

The flowchart found here explains things pictorially:


Many R packages contain functions found in other packages. These functions
are not necessarily distinct from those in older R packages.

*What then is meant by 'sufficient merit' of an incoming R package?*

I realize this question is likely to be opinion-based, but it is one that
grabbed my attention nonetheless.
