The notes you get illustrate why they are useful, if you look at your rendered 
documentation you probably will see something wrong. Thousands of packages on 
CRAN, including some of mines have had this kind of infelicities for years.

Firstly, the two sets of braces suggest that you meant a description 
environment, not itemize (in which  its only argument doesn't need braces).

Secondly, in the value section, \item is implicitly enclosed in \describe and 
you don't need to include the latter.

Subject: Re: [R-pkg-devel]  lost braces note on CRAN pretest related to \itemize

OK. Clear enough. CRAN applies a new "filter" as it was going through
without crying a note since decades ;-). However, indeed, re-checking
the manual "Writing R extensions" my syntax was wrong...
Thanks for the guidance,
