You're reading the wrong version of the manual. This is in the
"Packages referred to by these ‘other forms’ should be declared in the
DESCRIPTION file, in the ‘Depends’, ‘Imports’, ‘Suggests’ or
‘Enhances’ fields. "
This is at the end of section 2.5 in
I see. However, the HTML-source states
This manual is for R, version 4.1.0 Under development (2020-08-06).
I was relying on the PDF-version (4.0.2 of 2020-06-22) which does *not*
contain this sentence. Hence, I fell into the trap. Should be stated in
the PDF as well, IMHO.
Oh, c'mon. It will be a new requirement in R 4.1.0 It's not a
requirement in 4.0.2, and you didn't get a NOTE about it there, you only
got the note in one of the r-devel platforms.
The general way things work in R is that changes get announced well in
advance of release *by putting them in R-devel*. That's why you're
asked to check your package against R-devel before submitting: so that
it meets upcoming announced changes to requirements as well as ones that
are in the current release.
