11.8 Re-exporting

Making available to users of your package a function/object that is actually provided by one of your dependencies.

To do this you would:

  1. List the package that host the re-exported object in the imports field in DESCRIPTION
  2. In one of the R/*.R have a reference to the target function and include the import and export roxygen tags
  3. Regenerate the NAMESPACE

This will also lead to the generation of man/reexports.Rd which is where you keep a record of all of your re-exported objects with links to their documentation.
