[Bioc-devel] Does Bioconductor update my DESCRIPTION automatically?

You need to bump the 'z' of the x.y.z version when you check in (svn log
shows no version bump). This increment is a trigger for the package to
be (re)built and propagated to the landing page.

Currently the builds run Saturday, Monday and Wednesday at 7:15 pm PST.
Reports are generated about 32 hours later (Mon, Wed, Fri) around 3 am
PST. Whether or not you made your commit before the cutoff will
determine if your changes are seen in the next build report.
