Hi all,

The BioC 1.9 release branch has been created in rev20294 in svn.

Making Changes to Your Package in the Release Branch

If you have bug fixes, and _only_ bug fixes, you can update your
package in the release branch as follows...

In the instructions below, replace $URL with:

  1. Create a working copy of your package from the release branch:

         svn co $URL

  2. Edit, run R CMD check, and commit

  3. If the change is appropriate for the devel version of your
     package, make the same changes to a working copy based on trunk
     and commit there.

WARNING: changes are NOT automatically synchronized between the trunk
(devel) and the release branch.  You MUST port changes manually.

There is a way to use svn to help you do this and there notes under
"Committing changes to the release branches" here:

Resuming Development in trunk

We have incremented the version numbers of packages in trunk that are
part of the BioC 1.9 release.  For details on the version bumping
policy, please see:

At this point in time you may resume development on the trunk branch
working towards the BioC 2.0 release.

We will wait a day or so to bump the version numbers on the 1.9
release branch for the trivial asthetic of having packages in the
release start out with x.y.0.

Please post questions to this list.

Best Wishes,

+ seth
