If I have package A that depends on package B, which depends on package C; and B & C are in the listed Additional_repositories drat repository, it seems devtools::install() fails to find package C when trying to install B (and thus fails to install A & B). A simple install.packages("A", repo="my.drat.repo") works fine.
@cboettig I just opened a PR that should address your issue (as long as you specify your repos appropriately)
@eddelbuettel That vignette was written to explain the remotes feature of devtools, not as a general review of available CRAN alternatives. However if you would like drat to be mentioned in it I am sure we would be happy to merge a pull request with the change.
@jimhester could do if you think it fits -- I was mostly coming from the 'well remotes is not the only way to do this' angle of actually mentioning the fact that CRAN now formally supports Additional_repositories. The remotes documentation, focused as it is, seems to imply it was the only game in town.
