I understand that it is quite a bit intimidating if you continue to get flagged in your first and second threads only, but posting the same question again and again without any additional information and bumping it unnecessarily probably will not be helpful.

Regarding your question on dist, you can take a look here:

If you are not satisfied with the explanation provided there, may be you can go through the source code or contact the authors of the package.

Hope this helps.
