The metadata model seems somewhat minimal, for instance, that script seems to focus only on dependencies, I don’t see any author / title metadata parsing in that cran.js parser. (The CRAN dependency parser was only just implemented, so this data is not yet up on the landing pages).

They seem to be parsing GitHub data separately, and the landing pages for the packages show mostly data extracted from that (e.g. authors, title, etc as reported by GitHub, rather than the DESCRIPTION file).

I think they are also parsing the CRAN html records separately. For instance, compare the records of a package that is on CRAN & GitHub (testthat: to one that is on CRAN but not GitHub (Matrix:
