Hi Alan,

I just went on tokay2 and was able to manually run 'R CMD build' and 'R 
CMD check' on EWCE and they produced clean output. See below.

So I'm not sure what happened earlier with the SPB. Some sort of hiccup? 
Can you bump the package version again? That will trigger another build 
so we'll be able to see if that happens again.



Here is the output I got for 'R CMD build' and 'R CMD check' on tokay2.
Note that I didn't use the --merge-multiarch flag for 'R CMD check' 
(like the automated builds normally do) so the examples and tests are 
run only once (in 64-bit mode) instead of twice (in 32-bit and 64-bit
