Good day,

If limma has already been installed, such as by


and the attached minimalist R package is built and checked, a warning is emitted about the cross-reference in the documentation file. The Writing R Extensions manual states that the [packageName] specifier would only be needed to "... refer to not-yet-installed packages ..." but in this case, limma is already installed and is in the library path. Is the warning a false positive? I am using the latest release of R.

* using R version 3.5.0 (2018-04-23)
* using platform: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (64-bit)
* using session charset: UTF-8
