as far as I understand, you can safely ignore this Warning. It seems
there are different opinions around what should constitute a warning,
ranging from "look at this interesting factoid" to "here's something
that is not acceptable for a bioconductor package", which are not the same.
However, "R CMD build" should produce the PDF file for the vignette -
why does this go wrong? Do have details?
