Hey Lori,

I cloned the package from GitHub and I run R CMD build, resulting in an tar.gz file. I also tried to run R CMD check on this file, yet it printed the following error:

* using R version 3.5.0 (2018-04-23)
* using platform: x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0 (64-bit)
* using session charset: UTF-8
* checking for file ‘alternativeSplicingEvents.hg38/DESCRIPTION’ ... OK
* checking extension type ... ERROR
Extensions with Type ‘Annotation package’ cannot be checked.
Status: 1 ERROR

>From the output, it seems the Annotation package is not expected to be checked. What do you think? Anyway, I attached the tar.gz file (the output from R CMD build) you asked for.

Regarding the other package, I do not need to update it right now, I just ask permission to modify in case I needed to do so in the future.

If you need anything else from my part, ask away. Thank you!

However, I would also like to have access rights to my Bioconductor data packages (alternativeSplicingEvents.hg19 and alternativeSplicingEvents.hg38). Could you please grant me access to modify those packages?
