[R] testers sought for xtractomatic-like package

rerddapXtracto is an R package developed to subset and extract satellite and other oceanographic related data from a remote ERDDAP server. The program can extract data for a moving point in time along a user-supplied set of longitude, latitude and time points; in a 3D bounding box; or within a polygon (through time). 

These functions differ from those in the xtractomatic package in that they use the rerddap package to access gridded data on any ERDDAP server, but they require the user to provide initial information about the data to be extracted. 

I am looking for people to test the package.  Right now it is only available on github at https://github.com/rmendels/rerddapXtracto.  A number of people have successful used the package,  but for now consider it test quality only.  The vignette can be seen at https://rmendels.github.io/UsingrerddapXtracto.nb.html  and an RNotebook downloaded from there.

Thanks in advance for any help.
