[R-pkg-devel] url checks not working for me

Ok, Uwe was kind enough to take me to task off-list and I can now confirm
that I _can_ replicate the URL issue locally by ensuring all three of

 - recent enough r-devel build (that was true, I may add that the
   rocker/r-devel and rocker/drd containers I look after can help)

 - built with libcurl support so check capabilities()[["libcurl"]] (that was
   also true for me)

 - CRAN incoming checks turned on (and that was my issue)

One way to ensure the last point is to have a file


which I had (but where I had commented out 'incoming' as it can take a
moment).  Current values below, with thanks to Uwe for the reminder.

I reiterate that this really should be part of R CMD check --as-cran.  Maybe
one day it will be.
