Subject: Milestone: 10000 packages on CRAN

Henrik Bengtsson-5
Continuing the tradition to post millennia milestones on CRAN:

So, it happened. Today (January 27, 2017 PCT) CRAN reached 10,000 packages [1].

Needless to say, the rate with which new packages are added to CRAN
keeps increasing and so does the number of contributors (maintainers).
Somewhere out there, there are ~3 persons who are about to submit
their first packages to CRAN today and ~3 persons who will submit
another package of theirs. And by the amazing work of the CRAN team,
these packages are inspected and quality controlled before going live
- which often happens within a day or so.

As usual and it can't be said too many times: A big thank you to the
CRAN team, to the R core, to all package developers, to our friendly
community, to everyone out there helping others, and to various online
services that simplify package development. We can all give back by
carefully reporting bugs to the maintainers, properly citing packages
we use in publications (see citation("pkg")), and help newcomers to
use R.


Milestones:

2017-01-27 10000 pkgs (+6.3/day over 158 days) 5845 mnts (+3.5/day)
2016-08-22 9000 pkgs (+5.7/day over 175 days) 5289 mnts (+5.8/day)
2016-02-29 8000 pkgs (+5.0/day over 201 days) 4279 mnts (+0.7/day)
2015-08-12 7000 pkgs (+3.4/day over 287 days) 4130 mnts (+2.4/day)
2014-10-29 6000 pkgs (+3.0/day over 335 days) 3444 mnts (+1.6/day)
2013-11-08 5000 pkgs (+2.7/day over 442 days) 2900 mnts (+1.2/day)
2012-08-23 4000 pkgs (+2.1/day over 469 days) 2350 mnts
2011-05-12 3000 pkgs (+1.7/day over 585 days)
2009-10-04 2000 pkgs (+1.1/day over 906 days)
2007-04-12 1000 pkgs
2004-10-01 500 pkgs
2003-04-01 250 pkgs
2002-09-17 68 pkgs
1997-04-23 12 pkgs

These data are for CRAN only [1-13]. There are many more packages
elsewhere, e.g. Bioconductor, GitHub, R-Forge etc.

I join Henrik in expressing my humble gratitude to all the R and CRAN gurus like Brian Ripley, Duncan Murdoch, Luke Tierney, Martin Maechler, Uwe Ligges, Kurt Hornik, Peter Dalgaard, Simon Urbanek, and many others.  

Thank you & Best regards,

I predicted (rather tongue-in-check) at UseR! 2011 that we would have
this 'for Christmas 2016', at a time when there were 3200 CRAN packages.
  My expectation was to be much farther off ....
