Hi Junpeng,

Yes it is possible to do this.

1. We will first deprecate your package miRsponge in the devel version of Bioconductor.

a) You will need to add .onLoad function, which points users to the new package ‘miRspongeR’.

The .onLoad function goes in the zzz.R file, and it will throw a package deprecation message point users to the new package.

b) Push these changes to the package on git.bioconductor.org<http://git.bioconductor.org>

2. Once these changes are pushed, please reply to this email, and we’ll give you access to the new package miRspongeR.

NOTE: Make sure you make only deprecation commits to miRsponge from this point forth. All package development you want to actually take forward will go in the new package (which you will get access to)

Dear Bioconductor developers,

I am maintaining an R/Bioconductor package called miRsponge.  However, the name miRsponge is very similar with an existing database (miRSponge, http://www.bio-bigdata.net/miRSponge/). To make the package more distinct, I want to change the the name of package into miRspongeR. The name miRspongeR will be more distinct.
Is it possible to change the the name of R package that is already published on Bioconductor?
Sorry for this thing. Thanks in advance!
