The R-hub builder service is provided free of charge by the R consortium.

By uploading your R package, you agree to these terms and conditions.

Whereas there are currently no limits for R package submissions, we reserve the right to introduce rate limits for the number of packages uploaded per time period, in the future.


This web site uses cookies to carry out the email address check, and to maintain a user session.

User tracking and data

We do not store any data about our users, apart from the session information. The session information is deleted once the user logs out.

We do not share the uploaded packages with anyone, and only store them temporarily, until the build and check process is completed.

We store the check results (the console output) for a short period of time, currently three days, for debugging purposes. We do not give out the check output to anyone, except for the package maintainer, as declared in the DESCRIPTION file of the package.

We use Google Analytics to log data and ultimately improve the website, with the following settings:

  • IP addresses are anonymized within Google Analytics,

  • The GA templates respect the “Do Not Track” HTTP header,

  • The use of Cookies is disabled, instead Session Storage to Store the GA Client ID is used.


You use this service at your own risk.

We are not responsible for the code your R package runs during the package build and check.
