when checking or building a package RStudio deletes the inst/doc folder of my package project. That's scary. Am I overlooking something or is this a bug? I am using version RStudio 1.1.463 with R 3.5.2. and Rtools35 under Windows 10.
This behavior comes from the underlying call to
devtools::check(document = FALSE), cc: https://github.com/r-lib/pkgbuild/blob/6e4ebdf7f63a1a7d35fef3881f21c62bec1a1c40/R/build.R#L138-L148
I believe the intention is that
inst/doc will normally just contain built vignettes, and so the intention is to remove and restore that folder when vignettes are rebuilt. You could file an issue here to see what the package maintainer thinks.
