There seems to be something wrong with the summary.  Did you forget to
leave the second line empty?

This is a bit cryptic.  If you can, replace “behavior” with something
more … tangible.

Here’s what I wrote for my version of the package:

“This package is designed to be used with Rscript to write shebang
scripts that accept short and long options.  Many users will prefer to
use the packages @code{optparse} or @code{argparse} which add extra
features like automatically generated help options and usage texts,
support for default values, positional argument support, etc.”
