[Bioc-devel] Build error: Dependency 'Biobase' is not available

Hello BioC developers,

I'm not sure why the nightly build of my package IdeoViz is reporting this
error on tokay (see message below). It seems to me that not having Biobase
installed is such a fundamental problem that the package should have been
flagged when it first got submitted (sometime in 2014). What am I missing?

Separately, I got a message about 10 days back reporting a build error on
malbec1, but that seems to have resolved without my intervention. Does
anyone know what the case could have been there?
