ropenscilabs is a more recent addition, and is meant to hold more nascent projects - projects that are in earlier stages of development.
Community contributed packages that go through software review via https://github.com/ropensci/onboarding AND all new packages we internally create go into ropenscilabs.
At some point we move packages in ropenscilabs to ropensci. However, we haven’t yet determined what that point is. If we all used package versioning consistently we could say at
v0.5 for example we move to ropensci. But versioning is not consistent across packages. We do strongly recommend following semantic versioning https://github.com/ropensci/onboarding/blob/master/packaging_guide.md#-versioning
Question for everyone
What should the point be at which we move packages from ropenscilabs to ropensci?
