[Bioc-devel] patches submitted earlier today

Hi Allen,
   I think you misunderstand the process here. If you are patching a 
package, then I suggest that you contact the maintainer of that package 
directly and interact with them. They may or may not want your patch, 
and it is their software, it does not belong to the list. If you had 
checked your mail to the list you would see that the patches were 
stripped - so I think you should not expect them to be applied.

   I also think that it is a bit naive to send patches from some 
anonymous email account and expect anyone to take your seriously, but 
that is entirely your call.

  best wishes
