You & other package authors, users, contributors.
People who create visualizations with ggplot2 are the most important members of the community; without these users, this project would have no purpose.
Everyone who contributed to drake is part of targets. Four years of pull requests, issues, rOpenSci discussions, RStudio Community posts, Stack Overflow threads are materializing in this new suite of tools.

Everyone wants a better, well-maintained package.
Everyone wants something different for themselves.
I think if you want this, you could just include it in a vignette. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s a good fit for this package: developing good software requires relentless focus, which means that we have to say no to many good ideas. Even though I’m closing this issue, I really appreciate the feedback, and hope you’ll continue to contribute in the future 😄
