Your log says you have no examples but you do in your Rd file.
Your examples look the wrong way round x(function) rather than function(x)

Not sure whether those are relevant issues but perhaps they help.

Thank you for the replies!

First of all, here is the test package:

Session info and the log of R CMD check at the end. There is an error: "LaTeX errors when 
creating PDF version." However, it says "checking Rd files ... OK".

I have tried the install now on 4 different computers (via 
devtools::install_github), they all did not work.

Further points:
- Unfortunately, installation from a tarball did not work either. I build the tarball from the 
command line (Cygwin), then used R CMD, but tried it also from within RStudio ("Build Source 
Package", then "install.packages")
- I have managed to create another package WHICH WORKS. I have not been able to 
do it again though, I just don't know what I did differently.
- I played around with the documentation lines in the test package, to no avail.

I am sure that it is something very minor where I went wrong, and in all 
likelihood the problem is on my side. I just cannot figure out what it might be.

I am fairly certain I have observed this myself, and I *think* it simply stems 
from running R CMD INSTALL (and alike) from a source directory, as opposed to a 
tarball.  I filed it under minor nuisance and didn't care too much either as 
the official two-step of 'R CMD build ...; R CMD INSTALL ...'
is just that: the official and recommended way. With which things work.
