Marcel Ramos told me a few months ago (July 24, 2018) that experiment
data packages are now controlled the same way as software packages via
GitHub. Today I finally tried synching the repos following these
instructions http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/sync-existing-repositories/.
I had to use the "git merge --allow-unrelated-histories
upstream/master" step and resolve 3 small conflicts. It's almost all
working well, the step I'm stuck at is:

$ git push upstream master

To git.bioconductor.org:packages/derfinderData.git
 ! [remote rejected] master -> master (pre-receive hook declined)
error: failed to push some refs to
'git using git.bioconductor.org:packages/derfinderData.git'

My guess is that the hook is looking at
and thinks that I'm trying to bump from 0.103.1 to 0.115.1 while in
reality the version at
is 0.115.0 (updated in

Is there something I can do to make this work?

PS I guess that I don't need this file anymore:
nor the currently untracked svn files:

$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'.

Untracked files:
  (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
