The primary mission of the R Consortium is to develop and implement infrastructure projects to support the R community. As a Linux Foundation Project, the R Community embraces principles of openness and collaboration as defined in the code of conduct.
Board of Directors
The business of the foundation is managed by its Board of Directors, composed of appointed Platinum members of the R Consortium, annually elected Gold and Silver members of the R Consortium, and the ISC appointed director as defined in the ByLaws.
Infrastructure Steering Committee
An Infrastructure Steering Committee (ISC) is responsible for the identification, selection and oversight of infrastructure projects, as well as directing best practices and community leadership within the R community. Voting representatives are appointed by the Platinum and Gold members of the R Consortium, as well as an elected member from the Silver membership class and the project leads for all top level projects as directed in the ISC Charter.
As a project operating within the Linux Foundation, the project staff from the Linux Foundation focuses on project growth and health, ensuring a vendor-neutral environment for collaboration.
