Bug#897033: ITP: r-cran-promises -- GNU R abstractions for promise-based asynchronous programming

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tille@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : r-cran-promises
  Version         : 1.0.1
  Upstream Author : Joe Cheng <joe@xxxxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://cran.r-project.org/package=promises
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: GNU R
  Description     : GNU R abstractions for promise-based asynchronous programming
 Provides fundamental abstractions for doing asynchronous programming
 in R using promises. Asynchronous programming is useful for allowing a single
 R process to orchestrate multiple tasks in the background while also attending
 to something else. Semantics are similar to 'JavaScript' promises, but with a
 syntax that is idiomatic R.

Remark: This package is needed to upgrade r-cran-httpuv to the latest
upstream version.  It also depenends from the just packaged r-cran-later
so this needs to be accepted first in new queue by ftpmaster.  The
packaging will be maintained by thr r-pkg team at
