I’m trying to get my empirical Bayes package, REBayes, back in compliance with CRAN.
However, I’m not sure what to do about the following from R CMD check —as-cran on
the current R-devel:
Strong dependencies not in mainstream repositories:
* checking package namespace information ... OK
* checking package dependencies ... ERROR
Packages required but not available: 'Rmosek' 'reliaR' ‘pogs'
I misunderstood this message, and now realize that it was attributable to the (obvious) fact that these extra
packages were not installed on MY machine since I'd just upgraded to R-devel. The pogs package still produces
a NOTE, but hopefully that is not a deal breaker for CRAN.
Packages on which a CRAN package depends should be available from a
mainstream repository: if any mentioned in ‘Suggests’ or ‘Enhances’
fields are not from such a repository, where to obtain them at a
repository should be specified in an ‘Additional_repositories’ field
of the DESCRIPTION file (as a comma-separated list of repository URLs)
or for other means of access, described in the ‘Description’ field.
A number of people have had success using Dirk's drat package to make
such additional repositories.
