Hello BioC Package Maintainers,

There are two recent changes in R that you should know about:

1. The SaveImage field in package DESCRIPTION files is deprecated.
   LazyLoad should be used instead.  I've gone through the BioC
   packages and made this change for you.

2. R CMD check now reports more detailed warnings about mismatched
   brackets in Rd files.  Many many packages have mismatched braces in
   their Rd files.  Please review your package using a recent R-devel
   (or look at the build report) and plan on correcting the Rd files
   before the next release.
