R Contribution Working Group

The R Contribution Working Group is a collaboration between R Core, R community groups (including Forwards, the R Community Diversity and Inclusion Working Group, R-Ladies, MiR) and members of the wider R community. Its aim is to encourage new contributors to R core, with a focus on diversity and inclusion.

Current Work

The group maintains the r-devel/rcwg repository, with issues relating to current initiatives and related documents, such as minutes of meetings.
