Create a mini version of CRAN containing only selected packages
At the end of 2014, CRAN consisted of more than 6,000 packages, and by 2017 this number doubled to more than 12,000. Many organisations need to maintain a private mirror of CRAN, but with only a subset of packages that are relevant to them.
miniCRAN package makes it possible to create an internally consistent repository consisting of selected packages from CRAN-like repositories. The user specifies a set of desired packages, and
miniCRAN recursively reads the dependency tree for these packages, then downloads only this subset.
