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 
    R 4.0.0.
    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.
