Hi all, 

Ran into troubles sync-ing the repositories of a package. End up solving it and wanted to suggest adding a note to the instructions on "Sync an existing GitHub repository with Bioconductor” (https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/sync-existing-repositories/).

In step 10 of, I think it would be helpful add the note below, that is already present in the "Fix bugs in devel and release” instructions:

	NOTE: If you are patching your release for the first time, you have to make a local copy of the RELEASE_X_Y branch, by
	git checkout -b <RELEASE_X_Y> upstream/<RELEASE_X_Y>

Best regards,
Alejandro Reyes
