[Bioc-devel] Some build system news

Hi all,

As you might have already seen, we've replaced our main build machine 'gopher5'
by 'lamb1', a brand new server:


It's a 64 bit system running Linux SUSE 10.1 for x86_64.

"Main" build machine means that a devel package is made publicly available
(by being pushed to http://bioconductor.org/packages/2.0/bioc/) only if it
passes the CHECK on 'lamb1' with no error (it can have warnings though).

Also, maybe you've been wondering what's going on with some package description


As you can see, the individual pages for the packages listed below the GGtools
package are missing. This problem is related to the migration of all our
scripts from gopher5 to lamb1 and should get back to a normal state tomorrow
around noon.

Also the build results for our new Windows server (liverpool) are
not looking good for an obscure pdflatex.exe error that occurs
when building most of the vignettes. We'll investigate this and
try to fix ASAP. In the meantime, if someone has already seen this problem
before and can provide some usefull feedback, s/he is more than welcome.
A typical example can be seen here:
