Dear list members,

checking my updated version of prabclus with R-devel --as-cran I get a
mysterious note:

"* checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ... NOTE
Checking should be performed on sources prepared by �R CMD build�."

(No further information is given on that one in 00check.log.)

But my source is in fact put together by R CMD build.

Can anybody tell me what could be wrong here and how to remove the note?

DESCRIPTION looks like this:

Package: prabclus
Title: Functions for Clustering and Testing of Presence-Absence,
Abundance and Multilocus Genetic Data
Version: 2.3-1
Date: 2019-06-03
Author: Christian Hennig <christian.hennig using unibo.it>,
         Bernhard Hausdorf <Hausdorf using zoologie.uni-hamburg.de>
Depends: R (>= 2.10), MASS, mclust
Suggests: spdep, spatialreg, bootstrap, maptools, foreign, mvtnorm
Description: Distance-based parametric bootstrap tests for clustering with
   spatial neighborhood information. Some distance measures,
   Clustering of presence-absence, abundance and multilocus genetical data
   for species delimitation, nearest neighbor
   based noise detection. Genetic distances between communities.
   Tests whether various distance-based regressions
   are equal. Try package?prabclus for on overview.

I am at the University of Bologna since November 2018. My research interests are cluster analysis, multivariate data analysis incl. classification and data visualisation, robust statistics, foundations and philosophy of statistics, statistical modelling and applications.
I should maybe add that I ran the check on the proper tar.gz file produced by R CMD build, and apart from this NOTE and another one (which was far less mysterious) everything went through without issues.
