RKWard is an easy to use and easily extensible IDE/GUI for R. It aims to combine the power of the R-language with the ease of use of commercial statistics tools.
RKWard's features include:
Its features can be extended by plugins, and it's all free software (Above information from the current Rkward homepage.)
List the people committed to the project and actively working on it:
Currently inactive, but with expressed intent to keep contributing:
List the actions planned to get in compliance with the manifesto. Don't hesitate to even list parts of the manifesto which don't require action and highlight why. This part will really be used as a discussion starting point with the project sponsor.
No formal rules set. All people listed of the above (and one past commiter) have "admin" rights on the current SF.net project, and should continue to have admit rights.
Major decisions are debated on the mailing list, and generally made consensually.
All sources licensed GPL 2+. Docbook documentation is plain FDL.
The primary point of contact is the mailing list(s). For fighting SPAM, these require moderation on non-subscribed posters (but the policy is to allow all on-topic posts, possibly with large attachments stripped).
We plan to accept patches via reviewboard. We also plan to establish a side-kick project for external_plugins, which will be hosted on github. (Note: external plugins are plugins not (yet) targetted for inclusion in the official releases. A number of such plugins already exists, and can be distributed in a variety of forms. Of course, external plugins can also be developed completely detached from rkward infrastructure, and in fact some already exist. The idea of this is to offer a semi-official place that is _close_ to the project, and where project members will make contributions, but is not an official part of the project).
See section end-user focus: We're actively seeking feedback from our users, and frankly, we don't have a shortage of good ideas coming in...
The copyright notices currently read "Thomas Friedrichsmeier and the RKWard Team". At some points more specific contributions / names are listed. External plugins are owned by whoever writes them.
GPL 2+ to ensure the sources are nobodies captive.
We are actively listening to user feedback, although we have quite a backlog of feature requests that we'd like to implement but have not managed to implement, yet.
Infrastructure set up specifically in the hope of end-user participation: - rkward-users mailing list - feedback / discussion forums - feature request tracker - wiki
We are actively seeking to make our mailing lists and forums a friendly place, where nobody needs to be afraid of asking "stupid" questions.
