In general, is it likely that most functions which have been moved to
rlib packages e.g.
usethis etc will be eventually be deprecated from
devtools? If not, what is the overall strategy? For example, could these packages end up going the way of the
devtools becoming a metapackage which contains them?
Other than keeping an eye on actively maintained RStudio packages (e.g. those in the
tidyverse) and closely following the NEWS.md updates for the various
r-lib projects, what are the good ways to keep in touch with best practice for package development in R and the way the tooling is headed?
