GitHub Repositories and Submodule Relationships

The development for the math library, language and algorithms, and interfaces are arranged into the following repositories with arrows indicating submodule inclusions.

math <- stan <- pystan
             <- rstan   <- rstanarm
             <- cmdstan <- statastan
                        <- matlabstan
                        <- stan.jl
                        <- MathematicaStan

Currently, the stan repo includes the language, the algorithms, and the service API for the interfaces. There are additional repos for tools such as the emacs mode, R plotting, R Shiny interface, web pages, etc.
