  1.  Yes. If you package was accepted and is on git at git.bioconductor.org then it is set to be included in the next release version of Bioconductor. You do not need to do anything; the Bioconductor team will handle making appropriate branches to the repository.
  2.   You can add changes to Bioconductor devel at any time. The master branch of the repository is the devel branch of Bioconductor.  If you push changes to the master branch of your package on git at git.bioconductor.org (with appropriate version bump)  it will be reflected in the next Bioconducotor devel build report.

Subject: [Bioc-devel] Question about inclusion in upcoming bioconductor

Dear Bioconductor Team,

I had a couple of quick questions

1) Is our package set to go into the next Bioconductor if it’s made it through the submission process and we have access to the Bioconductor git repository? Is the master branch for that properly staged for the upcoming release, or do we need to do anything else like make some release branch or tick version or anything like that?
2) If I want some newer changes to go into Bioconductor devel, do I just make a devel branch on the git repository?

For context, I have recently helped Dr. Dan Gusenleitner with submission of the “IrisSpatialFeatures” package.  Now the package has made it through the pipeline to be accepted, and I have access to the bioconductor git repository for our package.

We are excited it for it to make it out into the wider community and just wanted to make sure we have is staged properly.

Thank you for your advice,
