This is not an issue with your code but with our check so it can be ignored for now and the review will be aware and move on with the review process despite this appearing.

We are reaching out to try and have it remedied.

Replying to this subject from two days ago, we have the same problem.
The scds package we submitted passes no errors & no warnings except the following:

* checking for future file timestamps ...Warning in file(con, "r") :
  cannot open URL 'http://worldclockapi.com/api/json/utc/now': HTTP status was '403 Forbidden'

See here for the full build report:

Not sure what to do about it, and whether the submission process moves on regardless.
Also, there was a message with the same subject on

Thanks a lot,
