Re: [Rd] New package test results available

I am the maintainer for the Rigroup package. Based on the e-mail below, I found and fixed a warning (spurious right brace) in the manual for my package under the new parser.

It has been a number of years since I last revised the package and I am not sure where and how to upload it. I looked on the "developer" page but did not see anything that said where to upload revised packages.

Sorry for the inconvenience but could someone please direct me to where I find the instructions for uploading revised packages.

Thank you.
