Hi Bioc team,

I am one of the maintainers for the OmaDB package, now in 3.7 release. The package is passing build and check on both mac and linux, however I am still experiencing an error on windows (tokay2) which I reported earlier and was suggested it might be due to connectivity problems by Martin. We have increased the robustness of the error handling in the package since (more useful error message, sending the request again 3 times at increasing intervals if it does fail etc) which has shown that the error is indeed due to transient internet connection of the server.

To alleviate this in the vignettes, instead of sending requests to the API I have included some lightweight example objects with the package. However, the error still occurs in tests and some function examples. As the package is an API wrapper and so internet connection dependant, I am not sure what is the best way to address this error. Would you kindly be able to provide some guidance on this?

Many thanks in advance,
