Is the raster package still receiving updates?

R-sig-geo mailing list
Dear list,

I realized that the latest version of the raster package was released on CRAN over a year ago.

I also noticed that Robert's participation in this list has become rather scarce.

I was just wondering whether the raster package is still receiving updates?

No,  it's effectively abandoned. No concrete plans known.

I'm interested to keep it going and have kept a list of fixes needed, but
not sure when or if I'll get to it.

I'd support any efforts in this,  I'll rely on raster for many years still.

Cheers,  Mike

Hodgess, Erin
I could take a swat at it, if you wish.  Please do send me the list of fixes.  I could start in about a week, if that would work.
Sincerely,
Erin

Great! I'm keen, but haven't done the work needed to flesh this out
properly:

https://github.com/mdsumner/raster-rforge/issues

I have not checked if there's been any commits to r-forge since I cloned
this.

Cheers, Mike

Re: Is the raster package still receiving updates?

The CRAN raster package has not been abandoned, if it had, it would have been reclassified as orphaned. Its test results have notes but no warnings or errors. It would be orphaned if the maintainer did not respond to CRAN requests to resolve test errors. Consequently, you are suggesting a fork, and should rename any package. Only the maintainer may update existing CRAN packages. I would not think that forking an existing CRAN package is the most productive way of contributing to the community. The package has many reverse dependencies, so setting up a test framework to find backwards incompatibilities would be crucial.

Of course, all contributions are welcome.

Re: Is the raster package still receiving updates?

Chris Reudenbach
Many of us rely on the raster package as a crucial basis for their work.
Big thank to Robert.  Nevertheless to contribute needs to focus needs
and ressources.  Maybe an information exchange/discussion with Robert
about options such as if/how the interested community can support would
be more productive.

cheers Chris

Re: Is the raster package still receiving updates?

Yes, this sounds fruitful. For now, I suggest that those wishing to enhance raster do so in an additional package enhancing raster and depending on it. Immediately, we should help Robert resolve the notes in the tests, they do not affect functionality now, but deserve attention to bring the package into full CRAN compliance. I can help with this.

Re: Is the raster package still receiving updates?

edzer
The the NOTEs on CRAN and the issues raised on Mike's raster-rforge GH
repo to me suggest that raster has, for a while now, reached a mature
state. Of course, you'd wish that raster development, in terms of
extending its power and features, would continue the pace it did 10
years ago, but that's a different issue. Mike has write access to the
raster r-forge sources, it shouldn't be hard to support Robert with
current issues.

Right after rstudio::conf (Feb 4/5) I'm meeting with Robert Hijmans and
Etienne Racine, to discuss, and work on raster future and integration of
rasters and stars. Anyone interested, feel free to join.

Stars has the ambition to jump over raster, in the sense that it doesn't
want to have the local hard drive as a limitation. That calls for
rethinking quite a few things. So far, things are still all in main
memory but it already integrates with sf:

https://gist.github.com/edzer/381dac079ddcd5174be31209675b3822

and handles time stacks of different attributes in single objects. Feed
back welcome as always; will write up the first blog in a few weeks.

Re: Is the raster package still receiving updates?

Vijay Lulla
Just like Mike I too will rely on raster for many years still and I will be
very happy to support efforts on this or whatever else the community
leaders (Edzer, Roger, and others) decide is the best way for us to move
forward.

Thanks,
Vijay.

Re: Is the raster package still receiving updates?

I too expect to rely on the raster package for years, and would be willing

Re: Is the raster package still receiving updates?

Barry Rowlingson
Here's what I think should happen:

 Robert Hijmans lets us know what his vision of raster is, and how he plans
to support it.

 He should say if he wishes to carry on as maintainer or not. If not, we
need a new maintainer and then we can think about moving development to
gitlab, or whatever.

Right, this is essential, and is planned for the meeting Edzer mentioned
in February 2018.

I've added an issue to r-spatial/discuss:

https://github.com/r-spatial/discuss/issues/17

simply to have a place to talk. This is the place (for now) to look for
information as it accrues. The raster repo is under SVN on R-Forge, of
course.

I'll be writing to Robert and others directly about this.

Is the raster package still receiving updates?

Robert Hijmans
In reply to this post by Barry Rowlingson
For a variety of reasons, I have not been able to do much work on raster
for the past year. And most of my thinking about it, and some work, has
been around a next generation replacement that is simpler in use and much
faster.
But for now, over the coming months, I will make sure that it gets updated
and bugs get fixed.

Best, Robert

Excellent, thanks Robert!   So I had somewhere to collect issues I made a
(now stale) fork of the R-forge repo here:

https://github.com/mdsumner/raster-rforge

I plan to review each issue mentioned and summarize them, but for now it's
a reasonable place to keep the notes. Should we simply email you details of
issues, or use the systems on r-forge, or do you perhaps plan to migrate to
Github?  If the plan is to stay where it is I'll just use my repo to share
ideas and planned updates.

On Github I think the potential for collective contribution from the
comunity is far greater. I'd also love to see raster converted to roxygen2
(I'm happy to do that, just need to know if it's a welcome change) and to
have a suite of automated tests in the package as well.

If SVN/r-forge is going to the be the system used that's fine, but I really
think we need a more accessible forum for sharing issues, and I'm quite
sure that most people will ignore anything that anyone else sets up unless
you approve it.

Cheers, Mike
