I am using package 'revdepcheck' to check reverse dependencies of a package and it works great. But now I have a scenario such that I wish it to use a local version of one of the dependencies of the checked package and am not able to find out how.

Some context: Package A imports package B. Package A has many reverse dependencies. I wish to check if an update to package B will break some of the reverse dependencies of A and/or repair broken reverse dependencies of A. It is obvious to update B on CRAN but this may lead unnecessarily to a number of CRAN updates.
