[R-pkg-devel] CRAN Pre-Test Problems -- FSA Package

I recently submitted a new version (v0.8.19) of my FSA package to CRAN. It was rejected at the pre-test level because of problems with automatic checks. There were three links for me to see what these problems were.

The first link from CRAN was to a win-builder check log (https://win-builder.r-project.org/incoming_pretest/FSA_0.8.19_20180403_023758/Windows/00check.log) that contained the single following warning:

* checking Rd cross-references ... WARNING
package 'DescTools' exists but was not installed under R >= 2.10.0 so xrefs cannot be checked

This is related to a cross-reference link in my documentation. Should I just remove this link (this link did not cause problems when I had submitted my package previously)?

The second link from CRAN was to my current (v0.8.17) package on CRAN (https://cran.r-project.org/web/checks/check_results_FSA.html). This shows several warnings related to a function in a dependent package (car) being deprecated. The new version of my package (the one I am trying to submit to CRAN) is meant to address these issues. As far as I can tell, through checks on my local machine, on win-builder, appVeyor, and Travis-Ci, these issues have been addressed. I don't know how to address this pre-test issue, except to submit the new version of my package. [Note there is another warning on this page related to the RMark package. That warning has existed for many versions of my package and has been ignored by CRAN in the past.]

The third link from CRAN (https://win-builder.r-project.org/incoming_pretest/FSA_0.8.19_20180403_023758/Windows/) was to the same set of win-builder results which only shows the same warning as the first link above.

I did reply to the CRAN submission with this same set of questions but have not yet received a reply. [This is not a critique, just pointing out what I have done.]

Any suggestions for how to handle these issues to satisfy the pre-test (and other tests) of CRAN?

Thank you for any advice.
