I am emailing you directly in extension of a thread from r-package-devel for
which you can see the full (short, five posts) history at

Not long ago I had the idea of defining macros for GitHub pull requests and
issue tickets.  This is now used in half a dozen packages.  So eg for the
Rblpapi package I use


and that is working just fine from CRAN as per


and all those links resolve.  Yet as of this morning all these links get me 

 URL: https://github.com/Rblp/Rblpapi/issues/68
    From: inst/NEWS.Rd
    Status: 400
    Message: Bad Request

whereas the link _of course_ resolves fine in the browser.

Is there a way to make the warning go away but let link survive?
