Tracking when R packages using rstan need to change

Is there some way to keep track of when R packages that depend on rstan need to be updated? For example it seems now .stan files should be in /inst/stan whereas previously they lived in src/stan_files, and src/init.cpp has been replaced by src/RcppExports.cpp.

At the moment, either way can be made to work. If / When the other packages absolutely need to change, we make PRs and link to a thread on Discourse.

Ok thanks. I have to admit Iā€™m not entirely sure what change was resulting my package no longer compiling. But remaking the package using rstantools::rstan_create_package has resolved things.

On a related note, this:
https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/rstantools/vignettes/minimal-rstan-package.html
seems outdated now since rstan_package_skeleton is now rstan_create_package
