this wasn't the right place to clone from; see the instructions at


you'll probably want to either maintain your package independent of github

   'Maintain a Bioconductor-only repository'

or 'Sync an existing GitHub repository' if you already have bioCancer in 
a github repository.

In either case, you'll need to submit your 'ssh' public key using the form


using your current svn id 'k.mezhoud'.  The form is still processed 'by 
hand', so you'll have to wait for approximately 24 hours after submission...
