[Rd] R on OpenHub

Does anyone want to manage the record for R on OpenHub?

OpenHub is a site that records metrics for open source projects. At
some point a record for R was created:


but there's no manager listed.

 OpenHub says:

 * Only someone who works on the project and has a close connection to
it should apply. Ideally the owner, founder, lead developer, or
release manager.

So not me. Sounds more like it needs to be someone in R-core or an R
Foundation luminary.

OpenHub is used by the OSGeo Live DVD to generate metrics for all the
projects on the DVD, and I've just been asked by the OSGeo Live team
to inquire about this.

If nobody wants to do it, no biggie, I think it just means the project
information will be less accurate.
