If you set up your package using rstan_package_skeleton() before version 1.2.1 of rstantools it may be necessary for you to call this function yourself in order to pass R CMD check in R >= 3.4. If you used rstan_package_skeleton() in rstantools version 1.2.1 or later then this has already been done automatically.
