You might have better luck updating the Author and Maintainer fields in the DESCRIPTION to Authors using R syntax.
It should also be noted there should only be one maintainer for the package.

Subject: [Bioc-devel] Author name displayed incorrectly in package landing page

Dear Bioconductor team,

I have recently realized the first author name in my rfaRm package is not displayed as intended in its landing page (https://secure-web.cisco.com/193JLq6IONh193nJKdBg7jMaHfoif8o0_WybBViZbQ0UP8aawQ14kwkCj_noco8kT0YPE3BXsytvhz50ObX6wK1Fe4l7-IDK0iuJoSGJNgkvmbjLvhzez_pidtmTAo5yRDK4kIXyrtr4XOfz64zfhM5hq75JJyTPeo8hOVt82rBZSsGEnglY-YtRN_f_XuGS0Ym64ZRjSqVy0Vqc6bqRgN5si-CXc2FIgMB1CKvYy504gmAGJWnwvxG9AAu7xfts8Fdzkq41r8Wo0ls7RzjqMd2lcl6rbr7_YVMXW4J-Rh9mulm1rNBt6cxB0RuxP6V55tG47KoMCP74tp38ozju5-CrZi3W2679q7ywr_niUN0M/https%3A%2F%2Fbioconductor.org%2Fpackages%2FrfaRm).

In short, I put my name as �Lara Selles Vidal� in the Author: field of the DESCRIPTION file. My first name is just �Lara�, and �Selles Vidal� are my surnames. However, it has been interpreted as Vidal, LS. The intended behaviour would have been Selles Vidal, L

Is there any workaround for this?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best wishes,
