Good day,

The features of the proposed package seem a lot like BiocInstaller. Once I have upgraded R and have the newest BiocInstaller installed using the bootstrapping technique of source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R"), I typically do


to install the GenomicAlignments package in a subsequent R session, for instance. This avoids repetitive sourcing of the biocLite script from the Bioconductor server.
