[R-pkg-devel] Building my R package: issue when importing two functions with the same name

I am building a R package, and I am facing an issue caused (as far as I understand) by the fact that some functions out of my package rely on two fuctions having the same name and coming from 2 different packages:


When checking the package via devtools::check(), I get the following warning:

Warning: replacing previous import ‘spatstat::roc’ by ‘pROC::roc’ when loading ‘GmAMisc’

Note that both packages are listed among the Imports in my package's DESCRIPTION file, and that (within my functions) I have actually used spatstat::roc and pROC::roc where needed.

I have done some web-search but I could not locate any workaround that actually fixes my issue.

Do you have any suggestion on the matter?
