Dear Andriy

I would second the advice that David and Ivan have already given.

I woouls also add that I suspect that most users search for packages by functionality so you might want to study techniques for search engine optimisation and then advise authors how to increase the visibility of their packages.

If the goal is just to record all package from your university then why not establish a page on your university website which links to all of them? The main problem there will be updating it after you have graduated and moved institutions.

Hi all!

My name is Andriy, and I�m a student at University of Alcal�, currently working 
on my final year project.

I�m tasked with organizing the R packages developed by our university that are 
currently available on CRAN. The goal is to enhance their discoverability, to 
achieve this the initial focus is on exploring the possibility of renaming the 
packages so that they share a common prefix, making it easier for uses to 
locate them in the package list.

If you believe there are alternative strategies to achieve a similar result, 
please feel free to share your perspective.

Additionally, I�m looking into the prospect of merging two packages that 
contain similar functionalities. The aim is to create a more comprehensive 
package by incorporation additional features and ensuring seamless 

Your assistance is key to the successful completion of my final year project, 
and I would be immensely grateful for any insights you can provide. Thank you 
for your time and consideration.

Best regards,
