Assembling an initial development roadmap for Arrow in R


hi folks,

In light of Romain's progress on setting up an R Arrow library
(https://github.com/apache/arrow/pull/2489), I started putting
together a Google document to sketch out a general scaffold for R
interfaces to the Arrow ecosystem and some of the initial deliverables
that would be of high value to the community (like plugging into
Spark+Arrow):

https://docs.google.com/document/d/16QpgNH0_uYkVZsaVK1VyQcuSYS5vRl_d0XCSvEyh6o8/edit#heading=h.uvtfq03inyw5

It's essentially patterned after the analogous functionality we've
developed in Python. If anyone would like edit access let me know and
I'll add you

This should eventually be transferred to the dev wiki
(https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/ARROW) but started this
as a Google doc to make collaboration a little lighter weight as we
get started.

After some comments collect, I suggest we move the roadmap to
Confluence and create as many JIRA issues as possible to capture the
granular work needed to develop each feature listed. I think it's OK
to create 50-100 R-related issues as a means of helping organize the
development roadmap.

Looking forward to getting this work off the ground!

thanks,
Wes
