[Bioc-devel] Can I use .Rbuildignore to ignore .BBSoptions?

Hi Gordon,

My understanding is that adding .BBSoptions to the .Rbuildignore file 
will tell 'R CMD build' to not include the file in the resulting source 
tarball, which is good (cleaner tarball).

And since the build system reads the .BBSoptions file from the package 
source tree, not from the source tarball, I don't anticipate any problem.

Can I add an .Rbuildignore file to tell R CMD check to ignore the .BBSoptions file, or will that cause problems for the Bioconductor management routines, i.e., will it make the .BBSoptions file invisible to Bioconductor as well?
