I'm trying to use renv for the first time and among the packages I'm using one (eeguana) only exists in github, when I do: renv::snapshot(), I get the following message:

The following package(s) were installed from an unknown source:

	eeguana

renv may be unable to restore these packages in the future.
Consider re-installing these packages from a known source (e.g. CRAN).

How should I deal with this? Can I just open the renv.lock and add to source a remote binary from github? From https://rstudio.github.io/renv/articles/local-sources.html, I have the impression that the sources need to be local..
