pkgndep: Analyze Dependency Heaviness of R Packages

A new metric named 'dependency heaviness' is proposed that measures the number of additional dependency packages that a parent package brings to its child package and are unique to the dependency packages imported by all other parents. The dependency heaviness analysis is visualized by a customized heatmap. The package is described in <doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btac449>. We have also performed the dependency heaviness analysis on the CRAN/Bioconductor package ecosystem and the results are implemented as a web-based database which provides comprehensive tools for querying dependencies of individual R packages. The systematic analysis on the CRAN/Bioconductor ecosystem is described in <doi:10.1016/j.jss.2023.111610>. From 'pkgndep' version 2.0.0, the heaviness database includes snapshots of the CRAN/Bioconductor ecosystems for many old R versions.
