Some Important Release Deadlines are fast approaching. See also the release schedule online

The last day for any NEW package to be accepted and released under Bioc 3.11 is this Wed. April 22th. Packages accepted after this day will remain in Bioconductor devel and included in the Bioc 3.12 release in fall.

This Friday April 24th is the last recommended day to commit changes (documentation , bug fixes, etc) to the devel branch. This is to allow all changes to propagate and build on the build system prior to branching. The branch will be frozen and branched on Monday April 27th making Sunday April 26th the absolute last day to push changes. All packages should be passing building and check without ERROR and WARNINGS by Friday April 24th. If a package is failing across all three platforms the package will be considered for deprecation depending on the length and severity of the ERRORS.

Please remember to update your NEWS files (In proper format!) by Friday April 24th for it to be included in the release announcement.  Here is an example from last release 3.10:
If NEWS files are not updated or in the proper format they will not be included.

If anyone has any questions of concerns please feel free to ask.

Thank you
