In step 7 I get "Could not read from remote repository"
Tomaszs-MBP:RareVariantVis tomaszstokowy$ git clone  
Cloning into 'RareVariantVis'...
warning: You appear to have cloned an empty repository.
Checking connectivity... done.
Tomaszs-MBP:RareVariantVis tomaszstokowy$ cd RareVariantVis/
Tomaszs-MBP:RareVariantVis tomaszstokowy$ git remote add upstream  
git at git.bioconductor.org:packages/RareVariantVis.git
