[Rd] Writing my first CRAN vignette

In fact my first vignette full stop.

I am intending to use Sweave. I have read the Sweave documentation 
and section 1.4 of the extensions manual and apart from (a) do not 
use split = TRUE (b) and include all the source components, there 
does not seem to be anything CRAN specific.

1 - Am I missing some other documentation?
2 - If I use a package from CTAN would that be considered within the 
spirit if not the letter of open source? I am not asking for trained 
legal advice here, it is the spirit of the rules.
3 - I assume including the .bbl file would be fine rather than making 
a separate .bib file?

I am not envisaging doing anything complex: text, formulae, some 
tables and one figure plus a few references.
