Package updates for new versions

Rich Shepard
   This is a question to better my understanding of the relationship between
core R versions and packages that work with them. It's not a complaint or
criticism.

   Installed here is R-3.5.1. There are two packages that allow integration
of R and GRASS that are not yet available for 3.5.1: rpy2 and spgrass7.

   Appreciating that package maintainers have day jobs that take priority
over volunteer package maintenance, I ask only for thoughts on when copies
of those two packages _might_ be available for 3.5.1.

Regards,

Rich

Rich,

Your best bet is to directly contact the package maintainers, as they would be the definitive source for timeline information on package updates.

They ultimately control that workflow for third party packages, whether on CRAN or otherwise, and can give you some idea of current status and plans.

Marc,

   Thank you, I will contact them. Being unfamiliar with standard practice I
asked first.

Best regards,

Rich

You can contact them as Marc suggested by opening an account at bit
(bitbucket/Atlassian) or git (github) Most prefer strongly to have a
primary at git before going to Atlassian other code checkers so you can
discover the package team there esp if any future development is in the
pipes.

Don't worry about it you dont have to be a founder or developer to have an
account there :)

?maintainer

in R accesses the package description file to provide maintainer info. No
need to fool around with git or other software development repositories.

Bert,

   I found maintainer names from the package entry in the local CRAN repo. I
suspect that the above does not work well with non-installed packages. Am I
wrong?

Rich

I recommend reading the DESCRIPTION file or the CRAN web page for the package if it is on n CRAN, e.g. [1]. While every package on CRAN is supposed to have an email for contact, many developers do prefer alternate communication approaches. Github is NOT used universally though.
