[R-pkg-devel] directory for non-checked vignettes

Dear Jonathan,

inst/localVignettes/ seems a reasonable idea to me. The users can find them
there if you add an ordinary vignette which explains where the extra
vignettes are located and how the user can compile them. You could consider
adding compilation scripts to inst/localVignettes/

Best regards,

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more
than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say
what the experiment died of. ~ Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher
The plural of anecdote is not data. ~ Roger Brinner
The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not
ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.
