Hi all,

maybe this is so stupid, I just updated to R 3.3 and all packages, 
including gglot2 (2.0.0, two days ago).

I noticed ggplot2 now export Positions, and I think BiocGenerics as well 
has that?

Now I having problems with my package that is under review in the 
package builder with this warning:

Warning: replacing previous import by ‘ggplot2::Position’ when loading 

I import DESeq2 and DESeq2 import ggplot2. I was importing as well 
ggplot2, so I was seeing this warning twice. I had to use importFrom to 
fix it. Now I only see the warnings once.

Could someone try to replicate?

I just updated ggplot2 to 2.0.0 in R3.3 and installed devel version of 
DESeq2, and I get the warning. I guess any package importing ggplot2 
should do the same.

I just want to know if it is some stupid thing I am doing, or this will 
start happening always n the future?

sorry if it was stupid.
