CRAN assertive maintainer

Dear assertive maintainer,

I enjoy using assertive and therefore some of packages depend on it. Due to this, today, I received an email from CRAN that assertive would become orphaned (that is, that there would be no maintainer).

Has a new maintainer already been found?

If no, I may volunteer.

Cheers, Richel Bilderbeek

    For people who came here in panic, here is a snippet to re-enable the wonderful assertive package with the last-published version.

    I decided to use what’s still available on CRAN as-is. if they break in future you need to install each of them separately, finding source url from the package’s CRAN archive.

    # install assertive package manually
    if (!pacman::p_isinstalled(assertive)) {
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/assertive.base_0.0-9.tar.gz", type = "source")
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive.properties/assertive.properties_0.0-5.tar.gz", type = "source")
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive.types/assertive.types_0.0-3.tar.gz", type = "source")
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive.strings/assertive.strings_0.0-3.tar.gz", type = "source")
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive.datetimes/assertive.datetimes_0.0-3.tar.gz", type = "source")
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive.data/assertive.data_0.0-3.tar.gz", type = "source")
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive.data.uk/assertive.data.uk_0.0-2.tar.gz", type = "source")
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive.data.us/assertive.data.us_0.0-2.tar.gz", type = "source")
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive.code/assertive.code_0.0-4.tar.gz", type = "source")
      # these are still on CRAN
      pacman::p_load(assertive.numbers, assertive.files, assertive.sets, assertive.matrices, assertive.models, assertive.reflection)
      # finally install the main package
      install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/assertive/assertive_0.3-6.tar.gz", type = "source")
    }
