Dear BioC team,
Pathview is experiencing some build and parising problem. It turns out that pathview imports some parsing functions from another package KEGGgraph, which was not exported anymore in the KEGGgraph namespace (latest release 1.38.0). Details in: https://support.bioconductor.org/p/98334/

Since previous releases of KEGGgraph worked, so I specify the latest working version in the DESCRIPTION file as 
Imports: KEGGgraph (== 1.32.0)
It passed R CMD CHECK locally, but failed the INSTALL online:

Obviously, Bioconductor testing servers does not import or load the namespace of the specified KEGGgraph version (1.32.0), but failed the test when seeing the difference in the loaded and required KEGGgraph version.
I would like to check:
1) whether this issue can be fixed on the Bioconductor testing servers?
2) instead of manual installation, whether biocLite() would automatically install the required version of a imported/depended package?
Thank you!
Weijun Luo
