[Rd] Packages required but not available:

Note this bullet in the CRAN policies:

Packages on which a CRAN package depends should be available from a
mainstream repository: if any mentioned in ‘Suggests’ or ‘Enhances’
fields are not from such a repository, where to obtain them at a
repository should be specified in an ‘Additional_repositories’ field
of the DESCRIPTION file (as a comma-separated list of repository URLs)
or for other means of access, described in the ‘Description’ field.

A number of people have had success using Dirk's drat package to make
such additional repositories.
