Money talks: Linux Foundation pours funds into R language

The Linux Foundation-backed R Consortium, created to support the math-and-statistics-centric R language, will soon put its money where its mouth is.

The consortium is prepping several new projects designed to advance the language, its implementations, and the culture of development around it. In addition to defining standards and practices for R, this includes funding R-related projects the consortium believes will be a boon to the community.
