Has anybody noticed that if field URL in DESCRIPTION contains a uri with
66 or more characters, then file DESCRIPTION in the resulting package
includes a line break at the beginning?
So this (source DESCRIPTION):
becomes (again file DESCRIPTION, but inside the package)
This has been tested with R on Windows 8.1 (devel 01/04/2015 and 3.1.3)
and Linux Mint (3.1.3). It has many sad implications including not
acceptance of such packages to CRAN.
