Hi Darin,

We're grateful that you're willing to do this!

Please be aware that a particular version of BioC is aimed
to be used with a particular version of R only. E.g. the current
release (BioC 3.0) is aimed to be used with R-3.1.1. Also some
BioC packages depend on particular versions of CRAN packages.
Only the CRAN packages used by our build system have been tested
to be compatible with BioC 3.0:


You can see the list of CRAN packages used by the latest builds
by clicking on the link under 'Installed pkgs' in the top table.

Note that, because these builds are currently live (they run every
night and will stop in April 2015), the CRAN packages they use are
always the latest packages available on CRAN.
