I would suggest forcing warnings to errors


and then when the now-error occurs using


to see what is wrong -- I think this is a call to a deprecated S4 method, and what you'd really like is the method signature.

    Dear all,
    In one of my packages, flowSpecs, I have over the last weeks gotten this warning message:

    * checking examples ... WARNING
    Found the following significant warnings:

      Warning: '.local' is deprecated.
    Deprecated functions may be defunct as soon as of the next release of
    See ?Deprecated.

    I am trying my best to check the ?Deprecated pages, but I find them quite uninformative, and the specific deprecation help does not take me further either, it only says:

    > .Deprecated(old = ".local")
    Warning message:
    '.local' is deprecated.
    See help("Deprecated")

    And most annoying of all: there are no .local calls in the package since weeks back. Very thankful for any input that can straighten this out.
    Best regards
