R can use multiple archives: CRAN, BioConductor and Omegahat have been supported for years. It is equally easy to add local archives from the same machine, or local network, or university / company network as well as other publically available repositories. This function aids in the process, and defaults to inserting a given source archive into a given repository.

One or more R package(s) in source or binary format
A local directory corresponding to the repository top-level directory.
Either boolean toggle to select automatic git operations ‘add’, ‘commit’, and ‘push’ or, alternatively, a character variable can be used to specify a commit message; this also implies the ‘TRUE’ values in other contexts.
Boolean toggle to call
A character string containing one of: “none”
(the default; add the new package into the repo, effectively masking
previous versions), “archive” (place any previous versions into
a package-specific archive folder, creating such an archive if it does
not already exist), or “prune” (calling
A character variable with the GitHub Pages location: either “gh-pages” indicating a branch of that name, or “docs/” directory in the main branch. The default value can be overridden via the “dratBranch” option.
This function inserts the given (source or binary) package file
into the given (local) package repository and updates the
index. By setting the
commit option to
TRUE, one can
then push to a remote git code repository. If the
git2r package is installed, it is used for
the interaction with the git repository; otherwise the
shell command is used.
An aliased function
insert is also available, but not

The function also checks for a top-level
index.html file to ensure
external tests against the repository (as for example done by CRAN if you
list the repository as an ‘Additional_repositories’ in a package)
do not return a ‘404’ error. If missing, a simple one-line example is
