This Git repository uses the Git Flow branching model (the git flow extension is useful for this). The development branch contains the latest contributions and other code that will appear in the next release, and the master branch contains the code of the latest release, which is exactly what is currently on CRAN.

To make a contribution to the package, just send a pull request. When you send your PR, make sure development is the destination branch on the grainscape repository. Your PR should pass R CMD check --as-cran, which will also be checked by GitHub Actions when the PR is submitted.
