R Source on GitHub

April 10, 2012

  • I added R source code v0.49 to v2.15.0 to a GitHub repository: r-source
  • Each release is tagged by version number.
  • This is an easy and accessible way to browse R source and diff with prior version. I couldn’t find a suitable alternative.
  • A tarball via Apache directory listing via CRAN mirror via the ____ (insert sarcastic adjective) R-project website is not a suitable alternative.
  • I will keep the repository updated as new versions of R are released.
