You don't need to do anything, except perhaps watch the build report
(http://bioconductor.org/checkResults/devel/bioc-LATEST/) and make
sure there are no errors and warnings in your package (which should
show up in the report tomorrow morning Seattle time).

Even if no errors came up during the package preview process,
sometimes they come up when new packages are introduced into the build
