Dear all,

I'd like to submit by package biodb (https://github.com/pkrog/biodb) in the near future.
The aim of this package is to present a unified access to diverse
databases (ChEBI, KEGG databases, Uniprot, ...).
For running examples, building vignettes and running tests, I use a
cache that is stored in another GitHub repository
(https://github.com/pkrog/biodb-cache), and registered as a Git submodule of
This cache is currently necessary, since accessing the databases during
"R CMD check" would lead to some connection errors and would take too
much time.
I would like to know if this scheme is acceptable for Bioconductor.

Best regards,
