Dear Bioconductor team,
I just found out that our package DeMixT 1.3.5 is failed to install for Mac under the developed version.
Does that mean I need to rebuild the package under the official Mac build of R 4.0.0 alpha and push it again?

Hello Bioconductor developers,
As you've probably noticed already, we're building BioC 3.11 on Mac again:
The build target now is High Sierra (used to be El Capitan), like for
the official Mac built of R 4.0.0 alpha (available here
https://mac.r-project.org/) and for the Mac binary packages available on
CRAN. This means that the binaries we produce are only compatible with
High Sierra or higher, as long as you're using the official Mac built of
IMPORTANT: CRAN and Bioconductor binary packages for Mac are NOT meant
to be used with an R 4.0.0 installed from source (they're likely to
crash your session, typically at load time).
Using BiocManager::install() with the official Mac built of R 4.0.0 will
pick up binary packages from CRAN and Bioconductor 3.11. It will fall
back on source packages only when the binaries are not available.
Please let us know if you run into any problem with this.
