Hi Paul,

I can reproduce the error on my Linux system but not on the Mac and am 
not sure why this is. Haven't tried Windows yet but from the looks of 
the build report that one is fine too.

R CMD check on Linux is failing on this line in 

   db <- dbConnect(driver, user = user, host = host, dbname = dbname)

Does this need a password (and probably DBI::dbConnect for completeness)?

There is a similar line in 
getEncodeRegulatoryTableNames,HumanDHSFilter-method which isn't failing 
R CMD check because the man page example is wrapped in /dontrun but it 
does fail for me when run manually. I think this one may also need a 
password - if you want to give me one off-line I can test this theory.

   db <- DBI::dbConnect(driver, user = user, host = host, dbname = dbname)

I see a .BBSoptions in trena for exclusion on Windows. The reason it's 
not being respected is because it's malformed and needs a space after 
the comma between the platforms. Just curious, what was the reason for 
excluding this on Windows?
