[R-pkg-devel] Cannot submit package due to misspell note

I may be wrong,  but I have "mis-spelled" words in my submissions.  When you submit to CRAN,  I am pretty certain the spell-check is automated by a spell-checker,  adn if those words aren't recognized they will throw the note.

Try creating a cran-comments.md file, and put into that everything you have done to check your submission,  and  every note that you receive.  If those words correctly spelled correctly,  put that in the file.  See http://r-pkgs.had.co.nz/release.html  for more information on making a good submission.  

Even with that,  likely on the automatic check you will get the same response, respond to that that  the information is contained in the cran-comments.md file,  and then give the maintainers a few days to respond.  I have found the amount of time till I get a response is highly variable,  as I am certain the maintainers are very busy,  mainly just saying don't panic if you don't hear back right away.
