[Bioc-devel] R CMD build not copying PDF vignettes to inst\doc

I am sure many of you may have noticed already, but basically every
package in Bioc-devel that has a vignette (i.e. almost every package)
is currently issuing warnings in R CMD check:

I ran some tests myself and it appears that in the latest version of
R-devel some changes have been introduced in R CMD build that causes
it not to copy the compiled PDF vignettes to inst\doc. R CMD build
returns only a silent warning such as:

* creating vignettes ... OK
Warning in file.copy(c(vigns$docs, outfiles), doc_dir) :
  problem copying
to inst\doc\plgem.pdf: No such file or directory

R CMD check then issues the following user-visible warning:

* checking package vignettes in 'inst/doc' ... WARNING
Package vignette without corresponding PDF:

Compiling my package from the same source but using the previous
version of R CMD build does not cause any problems, i.e. the vignette
PDF is correctly copied to inst/doc and R CMD check does not issue any

Should we bring this up to R-Devel mailing list?
