[R-pkg-devel] Non-standard things in the check directory

Just realized that nobody replied to this. So this seems to be a bug
in `R CMD check --as-cran`, it does not ignore the arch specific
examples and tests directories and files. It happens as well if you
run your check on a local windows, not just on R-hub.

Should I open a bug for this?

There is an env var for it called _R_CHECK_THINGS_IN_CHECK_DIR_, but
--as-cran overrides that, so there is not much we can do about it on

Right now this NOTE does not show up in new package submissions, new
package submission probably do not use `--as-cran`, but they set up
their own configuration, which might look like this:

Summary: you'll have to ignore this NOTE for now on R-hub and on your machines.
