Hi Maintainers,

We have added a new pre-receive hook on our git.bioconductor.org<http://git.bioconductor.org> system today. We now prevent large-files (>5MB) from being committed. We also prevent ‘duplicate' commits.

A duplicate commit is when two commits have the same content, but different SHA1 signatures. This can happen, for instance, when you clone git.bioconductor.org<http://git.bioconductor.org> and then merge with your local git development repository or github.com/Bioconductor-mirror<http://github.com/Bioconductor-mirror> repository. The best way to approach this issue is in the documentation, http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/abandon-changes#force-bioconductor--to-github-, including the option to cherry-pick local commits into the master branch synced from git.bioconductor.org<http://git.bioconductor.org>.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
