Hi Tim and Jacob,

So, as I understand it, (in the ideal world)

1) Tim would maintain --> MTseekerData and MTseekerData

2) Jacob would maintain --> biscuiteer and biscuiteerData

There are 2 aspects you need to understand here, 1) access 2) emails

- Access, the access to the packages was given based on the "Maintainer" field in the DESCRIPTION file.

- Emails are based on what is given in the "Maintainer" field in the package DESCRIPTION file. And it seems like all 4 packages have Tim listed as maintainer. This is why Tim is getting the emails. 

This is why Tim has access to everything right now. 

It seems like half of what needs to happen is happening, i.e Tim is getting access + emails to MTseekerData and MTseeker. 

I just need to get Jacob access to the biscuiteer and biscuiteerData. 

Jacob, what email would you like to use for this? I'll get you set up with a BiocCredentials account and give you access

At some point my credentials for bioc-git seem to have become interchanged with jacob's, and when I went to fix this, it appears that my email suddenly replaced that of all my co-authors on MTseeker and biscuiteer.  This is a bit of a problem since we are different people.
> How do I go about fixing this?  I am the maintainer (and currently fixing up) the MTseeker package and its companion MTseekerData; Jacob handles biscuiteer and biscuiteerData.  I'd just like to ensure that the two are as intended; we have discussed, but not yet implemented, a "rebroadcaster" email address for each package, and were wondering if that's a better way forwards regardless.
