Background: I run tools::testInstalledPackage on all packages that dependend on survival
(605 as of today) before sending a new release to CRAN. It has a few false positives which
I then follow up on. (Mostly packages with as-yet-incomplete tests in their inst directory).
Issue: testInstalledPackage("mets") generates an "Error in checkVignettes(pkg,
lib.loc, latex = FALSE, weave = TRUE)" message, which stops my script. The source code
for that package passes R CMD check.
I can easily work around this in the short term by adding mets to my do-not-check list.
Footnote: the newer "check_packages_in_dir" routine doesn't work for me. The biggest
reason is that it doesn't have a way to give a list of packages to skip. My little
desktop box doesn't have every linux library (cryptography, geospatial, etc.), nor do I
load up bioconductor; which leads to a boatload of false positives. I keep adding things
but the packages add faster.
