The advice I'd expect is to make sure there are neither errors no warnings, as CRAN guardians are (rightly) reluctant to tolerate either. And a package without documentation is unlikely to help anyone else much anyway - even the author, in six months time - so that really should be there.

A secondary issue might be a difference in R version; are you running your r cmd check with the R version currently used by R forge? The checks change over time and with R version.

Finally, have you checked the log on R forge to see whether the check is returning the same warnings/errors that you see locally?
