[Bioc-devel] package submission - problem with vignette

It means that when you run R CMD build YourPackageName, the vignette is not built.

It simply looks in the output of R CMD build for a line that starts:

    * creating vignettes ...

If this line is present, it means `R` has not detected that a vignette
needs to be built.

It's `REQUIRED` that the vignette be built.

If you have vignette sources yet still get this message, there could
be several causes:

* Missing or invalid `VignetteBuilder` line in the `DESCRIPTION` file.
* Missing or invalid `VignetteEngine` line in the vignette source.

See `knitr`'s [package vignette](http://yihui.name/knitr/demo/vignette/)
page, or the
[Non-Sweave vignettes](https://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/r-release/R-exts.html#Non_002dSweave-vignettes)
section of "Writing R Extensions" for more information.
