INFORMATION FOR RSIMPACTHELP DEVELOPERS
Adding package dependencies
If you want to use a function from a package, it not only needs to be listed in the NAMESPACE file, but you must also list the package as a dependency in the DESCRIPTION file.
If the package is on CRAN, it should be listed under "Imports" in the DESCRIPTION file.
If the package is hosted on another repository or website, it gets listed under "Imports", as well as "Remotes" in the DESCRIPTION file. How you list it under "Remotes" is dependent upon where you have to install it from. Here are the directions for listing it under Remotes: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/devtools/vignettes/dependencies.html . If the packages is from Bioconductor you need to, first list "biocViews" before "Imports", and then include the name of package in "Imports".
