[R-pkg-devel] Warning for failed attempt to rebuild the vignette of the previous version of a package

The Debian check log appends the check status of the current CRAN
version just for comparison.
Indeed, these old problems are sometimes mistaken to cause a rejection
and I think it would help if there were a few more empty lines between
the new and the old check results and if the first two lines said
something like
For comparison, current CRAN status: ....
From: <https://CRAN....>

Maybe the problem with your submission simply is that the spell check
results hinder automatic processing of your package and you need to
reply to CRAN-submissions that these words are spelled correctly?

Otherwise I guess you may have overlooked another issue somewhere in the
check log. If you included a link to the pre-test results (or a copy of
the check logs) you will likely receive more sophisticated replies.

Best regards,

The new vignette was rebuilt successfully, and there is no trace of the old vignette (the file ‘Introduction.Rmd’) in the new version.
