Details

When submitting a package to CRAN, it undergoes a series of checks before it is published and publicly available. cran_incoming() allows you to check the packages that are currently in the queue, and the folder where they are located. This information could help you track your package submission. Only the following folders are considered (approximately in order of the CRAN queue sequence): newbies, inspect, pretest, recheck, pending, waiting, publish, archive. The folders named after the initials of the CRAN volunteers are not inspected.

Note

The meaning of the package folders is as follows (see Hornik, Ligges and Zeileis https://journal.r-project.org/archive/2018-1/cran.pdf and Uwe Ligges mailing list comment https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-package-devel/2019q1/003631.html):

newbies

for first time submission; package will be manually inspected.

inspect

package is awaiting manual inspection; always happens for first time submissions and for packages with problems that are likely to be false positives

pretest

a human has triggered a new auto-check of the package

recheck

package has passed checks and is waiting for reverse dependency checking

pending

a CRAN team member has to do a closer inspection and needs more time

waiting

CRAN's decision is waiting for a response from the package maintainer, e.g. when issues are present that CRAN cannot check for in the incoming checks

publish

package is awaiting publication

archive

package rejected: it does not pass the checks cleanly and the problems are unlikely to be false positives

Disclaimer

The information provided here is only to give you an indication of where your package stands in the submission process. It can be useful to confirm that your package has been correctly uploaded to CRAN. Please consult the CRAN Repository Policy if you have any questions.
