@hadley Is this what you meant?

Yes, but I think the message should only occur if no options are set - i.e. if you've set them then you know that they exist. If you haven't set them, you don't know about them.

With this change (and the new comments) I wonder if I should bump the version number to 4.0.0

Do we need a message at all if we mention this change in the news? I would find the message (mildly) annoying when I do not set Roxygen in DESCRIPTION and roxygen2 tells me wrap=FALSE is the default value every time.

hadley Feb 6, 2014

The point is to be mildly annoying so you modify the DESCRIPTION. In my experience hardly anyone reads the NEWS so you definitely can't rely on it.

yihui Feb 6, 2014

But modifying DESCRIPTION is more annoying because R CMD check says

Possibly mis-spelled fields in DESCRIPTION:

which may require an explanation to crandalf. You know I absolutely hate doing that.

Anyway, I'll do what you want.

hadley Feb 6, 2014

That's there problem, not yours ;) Anyway, they haven't commented on the packages I've submitted that contain it.

yihui Feb 6, 2014

How does the PR look now? A message is emitted when wrap is not found in DESCRIPTION.


That's perfect, but can you keep the description as is so documenting roxygen2 doesn't raise a message?
