[Bioc-devel] ClusterSignificance version number

There is no problem with the versions.

The master branch is the devel branch -  and the DESCRIPTION on our git server is 1.9.0

The RELEASE_3_7 branch is the release 3.7 branch - and the DESCRIPTION on our git serve is 1.8.0

When you clone the repository git clone https://git.bioconductor.org/packages/ClusterSignificance  By default you are in the master (devel) branch.  So it would show the description as 1.9.0  unless you checkout the release branch. See:


Your downloaded tar was from release (hence the 3.7/bioc  and the 1.8.0 version)


The devel tar that shows 1.9.0 would  be from 3.8

Subject: [Bioc-devel] ClusterSignificance version number


I maintain the ClusterSignificance package which recently encountered a build fail. While investigating the problem I noticed that it would seem that there is an issue with the version numbering (quite possibly my fault). Both the master and RELEASE_3_7 branches were bumped to version 1.9.0 on April 30th although it would seem, per Bioconductor convention, that the RELEASE_3_7 branch should have version 1.8.0. Cloning from the git repo (git clone https://git.bioconductor.org/packages/ClusterSignificance), the DESCRIPTION file shows version 1.9.0 but if I download the Source Package (ClusterSignificance_1.8.0.tar.gz<https://master.bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc/src/contrib/ClusterSignificance_1.8.0.tar.gz>) version 1.8.0 is listed in the DESCRIPTION file. Could someone from Bioconductor please have a look at this and let me know if/what steps I need to take to fix this or if there is just some sort of misunderstanding on my part?

Kind Regards,
Jason Serviss
