Author email addresses

Jlaake
I have 3 packages on CRAN that I developed with my govt email address.
I'll be retiring in a month and that email address will no longer work at
some point.  I realize that I need to change the maintainer address and
I've already done that with one package but my question is do I need to
remove all references to my govt email address listed as author in various
files and replace with my new address for the package to pass checks?  I've
run into problems with outdated url values before and just wondering
whether the bad email address will cause a check failure. I read through
CRAN repository policy and did a search but couldn't find any guidance on
this.

The old mail addresses will not result in check errors ( but perhaps
should?). Please try to keep them current.

Most important: Please updates all packages' maintaoiner address early
enough and submit new versions to CRAN before the old address expires.

Best,
Uwe Ligges
