reposTools is now defunct (see #5):
Packages in 1.8 that didn't make it to 1.9
1. exprExternal (depends on externalVector)
2. externalVector (unable to pass check)
3. goCluster (removed at maintainer request)
4. MiPP (unable to pass check)
5. reposTools (defunct)
6. rfcdmin (moved to experiment data repository)
7. RLMM (version < 0.99.0)
8. SNAData (moved to experiment data repository)
9. y2hStat (defunct, replaced by more general ppiStats)
The functionality that allowed for downloading depencies was moved to
install.packages(), so this package was no longer needed. For instance,
biocLite() is really just a wrapper that figures out which version of R
you are using, so it can feed the correct repository information to
