Hi Kyle,

What I've done in your situation is to simply svn checkout the release
branch. Then copy the latest files from my local release code into it,
then use svn to push it to the Bioc-release trunk.

Here's an example using my `derfinder` package:

## Work somewhere where the 'derfinder' directory doesn't exist
cd ~/Desktop
## The following command creates the 'derfinder' directory
svn co https://hedgehog.fhcrc.org/bioconductor/branches/RELEASE_3_2/madman/Rpacks/derfinder
## Copy latest files from my local release

## Push back to svn
cd derfinder
svn commit -m "commit message"

This page https://www.bioconductor.org/developers/source-control/
might be helpful.

Everything *looks* in sync on the release branch, so I don’t know if I need to clean up the master/devel branch too (which sounds like it will be a pain) just to get things working for the release branch. I’m not sure what I should be doing here.
