[R-pkg-devel] CRAN upload and prechecking confusion

The version currently in CRAN fails the check on for 
r-release-osx-x86_64 with ERROR.

shows this.

In general maintainers are expected to solve ERRORs when submitting a 
new version. If this is impossible, then you should explain in the 
submission message why you cannot solve the problem that you are in 
principle required to solve according to the submission form you fill-in 
in CRAN.

As the cause the ERROR is that your package depends on a package that is 
unavailable under r-release-osx-x86_64, an explanation in the submission 
message should be enough, I think.
