Hi R-devels,

recently, we have seen a new warning by "R CMD check" appearing for the devel-version of our package distrEx available on  r-forge, e.g. as


Here is the warning:


[...snip ...]

See the information on DESCRIPTION files in the chapter 'Creating R packages' of the 'Writing R Extensions' manual.

[...snip ...]


We get the same warning under Linux and Windows (if this helps).

Unfortunately, we cannot give you very detailed information about our R running --- it is R-2.8.0dev but somehow R.Version() failed to give svn-details ---


[1] "R version 2.8.0 Under development (unstable) (2006-00-00 r00000)"

but we built this R based on the then devel-version on July 29.

Could you give us a clue in this
Thank you already
