[jira] [Created] (ARROW-3526) [R] Installation relies on package not available on CRAN

James Lamb created ARROW-3526:

             Summary: [R] Installation relies on package not available on CRAN
                 Key: ARROW-3526
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-3526
             Project: Apache Arrow
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: R
            Reporter: James Lamb

The R package currently relies on [vctrs|https://github.com/r-lib/vctrs[],|https://github.com/r-lib/vctrs] a project that as of now is not on CRAN or any other major package repository.

This is not mentioned in the installation instructions or anywhere else. Developers who do not already have *vctrs* (an experimental package) will get an error complaining about its absence when they try to install the arrow R package.

I recommend explicitly adding install instructions for it to the README for the R package.
