[Bioc-devel] verification on configuration

The instructions on


will not necessarily update the git.bioconductor.org version of the package.  Please also see


If the remotes are set up as follows (you can check with git remote -v)

origin  git using github.com:<developer>/ChIPSeqSpike.git (fetch)
origin  git using github.com:<developer>/ChIPSeqSpike.git (push)
upstream    git using git.bioconductor.org:packages/ChIPSeqSpike.git (fetch)
upstream    git using git.bioconductor.org:packages/ChIPSeqSpike.git (push)

We will recognize changes when there is a successful push to the upstream remote

git push upstream master

The  "deployed only if bump"  is still valid.  The build system will only recognize a new version of a package with a version bump in the DESCRIPTION.   So the NEWS file change will not be visible on the package landing page until there is a version bump.

You can create branches and push them to your own git repository.  Bioconductor does not allow additional branches created by maintainers.  We create a release branch for each new release of a package.   Any change will have to be merged into the master branch (for devel version of bioconductor)  or the current release branch (right now RELEASE_3_9) and a push to upstream in order for changes to take effect.

Hope this helps and don't hesitate to ask more questions here on the mailing list bioc-devel using r-project.org if you have any difficulties.

I am coming back to my package ChIPSeqSpike after a long break. I have
followed the instructions here:

I have imported my project in eclipse and did a push after modifying the
NEWS file. Will this be visible on the dev page knowing that I did not bump
the version?

Can you confirm that following the instructions above will modify the dev

I see that it is now possible to create branches, I think it was not
possible before. Will the modifications on a particular branch pushed to
upstream only when merging it?

Is the rule "deployed only if bump" still valid?

Sorry for not having followed all modifications, just coming back to it.
