  5. How can I contribute to R? 5.6 How can I

    contribute to R? R is in active development and there is always a risk of bugs creeping in. Also, the developers do not have access to all possible machines capable of running R. So, simply using it and communicating problems is certainly of great value. The R Developer Page acts as an intermediate repository for more or less finalized ideas and plans for the R statistical system. It contains (pointers to) TODO lists, RFCs, various other writeups, ideas lists, and SVN miscellanea. https://cran.r-project.org/doc/FAQ/R-FAQ.html Colin FAY (@_ColinFay) - useR! 2019 opening session - https://rtask.thinkr.fr 5 / 28
