Increasingly, I’ve had discussions with folks about the merits of including non-base R code into work flows - especially in the context of making packages and reproducibility. Considering the prominence and general expression of best practices of RStudio products (e.g., tidyverse), I’m wondering if there are any talks between RStudio and the R Foundation to make things like the tidyverse a permanent part of the base R distribution. Personally, that kind of action would make me feel a little bit easier about using RStudio packages in work flows I’m developing.
Thoughts? Comments? Concerns?
