      Description

      The R package currently relies on vctrs a project that as of now is not on CRAN or any other major package repository.

      This is not mentioned in the installation instructions or anywhere else. Developers who do not already have vctrs (an experimental package) will get an error complaining about its absence when they try to install the arrow R package.

      I recommend explicitly adding install instructions for it to the README for the R package.
