Hi Sunny,

I would venture a guess and suggest that is about the too fined grained version you defined in the DESCRIPTION file.

I would suggest, that you try to define an R version, which follows the format x.y and not x.y.z. So for you that would be R (>= 4.0).

Hope that works,

Betreff: [Bioc-devel] R Dependency Warning


I'm in the process of submitting two packages to Bioconductor, MOMA and its associated data package moma.gbmexample. I keep getting this warning about the R dependency:

* Checking R Version dependency...
    * WARNING: Unless package includes compressed data, remove R
      version dependency

Both packages do have compressed data and I have tried both making the dependency 4.0.0 and 3.6 but have gotten the error both times. Which is the correct R version to list as the dependency on the upcoming release version? Or is this a warning that should be ignored given that I do have compressed data?

Thank you
Sunny Jones
