5 :     for detailed information on registering a new project.
6 :    
7 :     1. Introduction
8 :     -----------------------------------------------------------------------
9 :     R is free software distributed under a GNU-style copyleft. R-Forge is
10 :     a central platform for the development of R packages, R-related
11 :     software and further projects. Among many other web-based features it
12 :     provides facilities for collaborative source code management via
13 :     Subversion (SVN).
14 :    
15 :     2. The directory you're in
16 :     -----------------------------------------------------------------------
17 :     This is the repository of your project. It contains two important
18 :     pre-defined directories namely 'www' and 'pkg'. They must not be
19 :     deleted otherwise R-Forge's core functionality will not be available
20 :     (daily checking and building of your package or the project websites).
21 :     These two directories are standardized and therefore are going to be
22 :     described in this README. The rest of your repository can be used as
23 :     you like.
24 :    
25 :     3. 'pkg' directory
26 :     -----------------------------------------------------------------------
27 :     To make use of the package building and checking feature the package
28 :     source code has to be put into the 'pkg' directory of your repository
29 :     (i.e., 'pkg/DESCRIPTION', 'pkg/R', 'pkg/man', etc.) or, alternatively,
30 :     a subdirectory of 'pkg'. The latter structure allows to have more than
31 :     one package in a single project, e.g., if a project consists of the
32 :     packages foo and bar then the source code is located in 'pkg/foo' and
33 :     'pkg/bar', respectively.
34 :    
35 :     R-Forge automatically examines the 'pkg' directory of every repository
36 :     and builds the package sources as well as the package binaries on a
37 :     daily basis for Mac OSX and Windows (if applicable). The package builds
38 :     are provided in the 'R Packages' tab for download or can be installed
39 :     directly in R from a CRAN-style repository using
40 :     'install.packages("foo", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org")'.
41 :     Furthermore, in the 'R Packages' tab developers can examine logs of the
42 :     build and check process on different platforms.
43 :    
44 :     4. 'www' directory
45 :     -----------------------------------------------------------------------
46 :     Developers may present their work on a subdomain of R-Forge, e.g.,
47 :     'http://foo.R-Forge.R-project.org', or via a link to an external
48 :     website.
49 :    
50 :     This directory contains the project homepage which gets updated hourly
51 :     on R-Forge, so please take into consideration that it will not be
52 :     available right after you commit your changes or updates.
