This NOTE is there for CRAN staff to have another look at the
Maintainer: field in case this is someone's first submission or there
is a change in package ownership.

These should be explained in the "Optional comment" field in the CRAN
submission form.

How exactly do you build and check your package? It is recommended to
run the command "R CMD build ." in the source directory of the package,
then "R CMD check mypackage_version.tar.gz" (substituting the name of
the newly generated file for mypackage_version.tar.gz).

It might be a better idea to use file.temp() for these file paths. CRAN
policy says that packages should not write files anywhere besides R's
session temporary directory unless user explicitly passes the the path.
