One of the steps performed by default during R CMD build is
tools::resaveRdaFiles(), which passes NULL as version= argument to
save(). Around R (not sure about this) 3.6.0 version=NULL was changed to
mean version=3, so if you want to preserve compatibility with R <
3.5.0, you may need to run tools::resaveRdaFiles(..., version = 2)
before running R CMD build --no-resave-data.
