I was recently pointed to the citation() function being enabled for
packages now.  This is a good thing to get setup for your packages,
although by default it will extract information from your DESCRIPTION
file.  Package maintainers should all run citation("<pkgName>") and see if
they like the default output.  If you'd like to change it, create a file
named 'CITATION' - an example of the proper format can be found in
R/src/library/base/inst/CITATION.  The man page for citation also has some
info that might be useful.
