Many of us rely on the raster package as a crucial basis for their work.
Big thank to Robert. Nevertheless to contribute needs to focus needs
and ressources. Maybe an information exchange/discussion with Robert
about options such as if/how the interested community can support would
be more productive.

> The CRAN raster package has not been abandoned, if it had, it would have been reclassified as orphaned. Its test results have notes but no warnings or errors. It would be orphaned if the maintainer did not respond to CRAN requests to resolve test errors. Consequently, you are suggesting a fork, and should rename any package. Only the maintainer may update existing CRAN packages. I would not think that forking an existing CRAN package is the most productive way of contributing to the community. The package has many reverse dependencies, so setting up a test framework to find backwards incompatibilities would be crucial.

I'm keen, but haven't done the work needed to flesh this out properly: https://github.com/mdsumner/raster-rforge/issues I have not checked if there's been any commits to r-forge since I cloned this.
