I'm considering using one of the many logging packages to help debug one of my own packages, but a quick browse of CRAN suggests that not many others do this. For example, debugme, which is in the r-lib organisation, has only 3 reverse imports, and 4 reverse suggests.
Do the maintainers of major packages (e.g. tidyverse) not use loggers? Do they use them, but somehow avoid them as a CRAN dependency? What are the alternatives?
