I guess you're on Windows, and the problem is that CRAN is not providing 
the correct binaries at the moment


this will eventually get cleared up, but for a Windows developer it 
means that they must install their packages from 'source'. This could be 
not too painful (install 'Rtools' from 
https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/Rtools/) or quite painful (e.g., 
compiling XML).

a strategy would be to create a github branch that had dependencies on 
an earlier version of R, and to point your github users there until your 
package is in Bioconductor.
