CRAN added DOIs

I noticed that CRAN recently added DOIs to all published packages (between Published and Author). Was this change discussed somewhere? I am mostly just curious why they decided to add DOIs when they already had the canonical links.


There was this announcement on Mastodon with some discussion below: Achim Zeileis: "PSA: All #rstats package on #cran will get an off…" - Fosstodon (found the link via rOpenSci | rOpenSci News Digest, June 2024, nice newsletter -- that I curate with colleagues :grin: )
