  • The recording, collaborative notes and links to community discussion and resources are up for our latest Community Call on Maintaining an R package. Panel moderated by Julia Silge included Elin Waring, Erin Grand, Leonardo Collado-Torres, and Scott Chamberlain.


🔗 Software Peer Review

1 staff-contributed package passed software peer review.

On March 16, we paused new submissions for software peer review for 30 days (possibly longer) in the interest of reducing load on reviewers and editors in light of the COVID-19 crisis.


🔗 Software

5 new packages from the community and our staff are on CRAN.
