[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
Project: Apache Arrow
Issue Type: Bug
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.
