The sole purpose of this package is to install other packages. It is meant to be a quick way to install all the packages that I typically use in R. Although perhaps not the most elegant way to restore the package ecosystem of any new install, the use of devtools is very helpful since it allows specifying repository locations for non-CRAN packages.

Think of this as my "dotfiles" repo for R. In fact, I might put my .Rprofile here at some point.

If you have a neat strategy for managing packages after upgrades or fresh installs, please submit an issue. I'd like to hear about it!
