I stumbled upon `remotes` and that is based on `devtools` but it fails because RTOOLS haven't been upgraded for 3.5.1

Sorry about posting twice and I am pretty sure I added this detail in another msg which will also be released by the moderator q yet :x

No need to post twice.

I don't use Bitbucket, but it looks like the devtools package has a install_bitbucket() function, so perhaps that will do what you want.

In terms of making a stable archive file available, that will be entirely up to the package maintainer and when/how they choose to make that available (e.g. via CRAN or other vehicles).
