Sorry, I didn't realize you weren't executing that file. (Should it be included in the tar? That's a different issue...)

Lazy data is stored in a separate file that is loaded when library(munsell) is called. It appears it isn't being loaded when you only use munsell::mnsl to load it but not attach it. Certainly loading it from one of your .R files would work; I'm not sure if it is intentional that this is necessary or not. Perhaps someone else will comment?
