  1.   Here is a page that describes versioning:



When there is a Bioconductor release we bump the 'y' version of the package to even for release and then again in devel so devel is odd and a version above the current release.  (when a package is accepted the first release version is 1.0.0 and devel 1.1.0)

So yes the next commit you would push should have a version 1.1.1.  You might also want to look at pulling changes from Bioconductor and pushing to local:


2.  If your package is building on linux and mac you can ignore the windows ERROR.  Most of these ERRORs are do to CRAN package binaries not being available yet for R 3.5.

Subject: [Bioc-devel] Version update question and an error?


I have had a package quite recently accepted to the bioconductor. I have
two questions:

1. My version is listed as 0.99.98 in my local description file, 1.1.0 in
my bioconductor development web page, and 1.0.0 in the non development
bioconductor web page. Do I bump to 1.1.1 in my next commit to the github?

2. I may have missed another email about this, but I noticed my development
page has an error for build check for windows, but many other packages have
this for windows atm, I checked the whole list. Is this something I need to
worry about?

Below is the error code:

* checking for file 'M3C/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* preparing 'M3C':
* checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ... OK
* installing the package to build vignettes
* creating vignettes ... ERROR

Many thanks,
