The 'Additional_repositories' field is meant for additional CRAN-like
repositories, not for a git(hub) repository. A simple way to create such
a CRAN-like repository is given by the drat package, as mentioned in the
referenced SO answer. I am using that for the swephR package:

Encoding: UTF-8
URL: https://github.com/rstub/swephR/, http://www.astro.com/swisseph/
BugReports: https://github.com/rstub/swephR/issues/
Additional_repositories: https://rstub.github.io/drat

So while the 'swephRdata' can be found at
https://github.com/rstub/swephRdata/, the 'Additional_repositories'
field points to my drat repository.

In your case, you could either ask the rPeaks author to create a drat
repo or do that yourself (possibly with the author's consent).
