Hello everyone

Lots of my packages have been the subject of journal articles either in JSS or Rnews or (in one case) elsewhere.

I would like to add these articles
to my packages as vignettes.

Reproducing the papers exactly requires a number of files [such as style files or PDFs] to be included in   the inst/doc directory to pass R CMD check.

A vanilla .Rnw file seems to be a good idea, but loses some of the nice JSS typesetting.

What is Best Practice here?

And are there ethical or other issues that I should be aware of before including copies of Rnews or JSS papers verbatim in an R package?
