From my submission of today, which had 0 errors, 0 warnings and 0 notes in RStudio when checking with devtools:

Thanks, we see:

The Title field should be in title case, current version then in title case:
'Shiny App for Line By Line Comparison of Two Files'
'Shiny App for Line by Line Comparison of Two Files'

Please fix and resubmit.

Uwe Ligges

So I made a small mistake; title case not applied. Would it be possible to include this in the Check Package function when the --as-cran parameter is used? Thanks!

This check is not run by default with devtools::check() because the check require network access to CRANs servers and take a long time to run.

Using devtools::check(check_version = TRUE) turns on this check, and this check is turned on when using devtools::release(). It will also be turned on if you submit your package to win builder with devtools::build_win() or rhub with rhub::check_for_cran().

These are all checks that are useful to run prior to CRAN submission.

Set _R_CHECK_CRAN_INCOMING_REMOTE_ if it is available
This turns off only the remote checks vs _R_CHECK_CRAN_INCOMING_ which
turns off all of the incoming checks. So you will still catch spelling /
capitalization issues.

Fixes r-lib#1702

I made a change in the devel version of devtools which will now turn on more of the incoming checks, so this specific case will now be caught by devtools::check() with the default arguments and R versions > 3.4.0
