[Bioc-devel] CRAN package with Bioconductor dependencies

Hi, Bioc-devel folks,

Is there an accepted way to migrate a package from CRAN to BioC?  CRAN's policy says, "The package’s license must give the right for CRAN to distribute the package in perpetuity."...

Is it enough to request that CRAN archive the package, then submit it as a new package to BioC?  I own a CRAN package (msarc) that probably should have been in BioC from the start, but isn't.  Suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

 - Gord
