[Bioc-devel] Python dependency

It's important to ask 'why Bioconductor?' with the answer partly involving interoperability with other Bioconductor packages and data representations (e.g., http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/commonMethodsAndClasses/). There wouldn't be much value in making something that is essentially a python package without connection to Bioconductor available in Bioconductor.

    To whom it may concern,
    I would like to upload onto Bioconductor a package which is currently developed in python.
    I was wondering if Bioconductor supports python dependencies or if I should re-program the package in R exclusively. Is calling python from R using the package "reticulate" acceptable for a package submission onto Bioconductor?
    Thank you for your attention.
    All the best,
