Dear All,

The metafor package currently fails CRAN checks on Sparc Solaris:


The problem is probably due to an unintended (= stupid) use of identical() in a couple tests. I have changed that to more appropriate tests using all.equal(). However, before I resubmit the package to CRAN, I would really like to make sure that the updated package passes all checks also on Sparc Solaris.

The issue/question of how to test packages on Sparc Solaris has come up before:


Unless anything has changed in the meantime, it seems like the help of kind volunteers is still the only option to conduct such tests. So, is there anybody out there with access to a Sparc machine running Solaris willing to run 'R CMD check --as-cran' on the updated tarball? Would be very much appreciated!
