xgBoost tests in R



I am running a few use cases of xgBoost in R,
and I would like to submit these cases as part
of the test cases for xgBoost. Currently, I see
a folder in GitHub for Python test cases. I was
wondering how to go about creating test cases
in R.

Also, is the latest version (0.81, I presume)
available for R? What I have is 0.71.2.

Thanks much!


The tests are located in https://github.com/dmlc/xgboost/tree/master/R-package/tests/testthat

As for the version, 0.81 isn’t yet available on CRAN, since we were unable to pass some CRAN checks.


Thank you, Philip. Much appreciate your response.
