[R-pkg-devel] Problem enhancing a package with a predict method not declared to be an S3 method

I had realized that they were internal functions.
However, I was conjecturing that the maintainer intends for them to be employed by package users and that use of the ':::' operator might be acceptable in these circumstances.
It appears not and I have modified my package to remove all occurrences of ':::'.
Thanks to all for your comments,

And of course, you can even tell the Rd file that it documents an internal function.
