ink1">ink1">Dear List,

While trying to define a customised CITATION file for a package, following R-exts, I realised that if I use only one 'citEntry' I got both a text description and a BibTex entry for the package, as for the ink1">'nlme' package:


To cite package 'nlme' in publications use:

   Jose Pinheiro, Douglas Bates, Saikat DebRoy, Deepayan Sarkar and the    R Development Core Team (2012). nlme: Linear and Nonlinear Mixed    Effects Models. R package version 3.1-105.

A BibTeX entry for LaTeX users is


     title = {nlme: Linear and Nonlinear Mixed Effects Models},
     author = {Jose Pinheiro and Douglas Bates and Saikat DebRoy and 
Deepayan Sarkar and {R Core Team}},
     year = {2012},
     note = {R package version 3.1-105},

BUT, if I use two or more 'citEntry' in the CITATION file (e.g., for the manual and a book), the bibTeX entries are NOT shown any more, and only the text description for the two or more entries are shown, as for the 'boot' package:


To cite the 'boot' package in publications use:

   Angelo Canty and Brian Ripley (2012). boot: Bootstrap R (S-Plus)    Functions. R package version 1.3-7.

   Davison, A. C. & Hinkley, D. V. (1997) Bootstrap Methods and Their    Applications. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge. ISBN    0-521-57391-2

Is there any way to show the two bib entries for cases similar to the 'boot' package ?

R version 2.15.2 (2012-10-26)
Platform: x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu (64-bit)

[3] LC_TIME=en_GB.utf8 LC_COLLATE=en_GB.utf8
[5] LC_MONETARY=en_GB.utf8 LC_MESSAGES=en_GB.utf8
