tidyverse's view on current Excel packages

Does anyone have info on what the tidy team's view is on the assortment of Excel packages? Whether they have considered writing a more expansive Excel package? I know Jenny has been quoted as saying that this space could use more hands. (I feel this would make an interesting tidyverse blog post.)

We now have:

  • openxlsx2
  • openxlsx (not being maintained)
  • XLConnect (Mirai Solutions)
  • xlsx
  • readxl (tidyverse)
  • writexl (ropensci)
