[Bioc-devel] Issue with 'configure' not being executable

This is what I see in a recent checkout of your package

CoGAPS master$ ls -l configure*
-rw-r--r--  1 ma38727  ROSWELL\Domain Users  248755 Oct 27 21:24 configure
-rw-r--r--  1 ma38727  ROSWELL\Domain Users    3748 Oct 27 21:23 configure.ac

The '-rw' means that the files can be read / written by the owner of the file; if it were executable this would be '-rwx'

On non-Windows I think you would change the execute status

  chmod u+x configure

and then commit. This https://stackoverflow.com/a/21694391/547331 might help on Windows.

    The latest build for our package (https://github.com/FertigLab/CoGAPS) failed with the error -
    ERROR: 'configure' exists but is not executable -- see the 'R Installation and Administration Manual'
    I've run into this before with our CI service, but the issue was fixed there by modifying TMPDIR based on the recommendation here: http://mazamascience.com/WorkingWithData/?p=1185 .
    I'm not sure how to fix this issue for the bioconductor build system, so I've temporarily removed the configuration step.
    Any help is much appreciated,
