[Bioc-devel] Sorry confused about version numbers etc...

The version scheme is outlined at https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/version-numbering/

Within a 'release', the version x.y.z is always bumped in the z field. You are at 1.8.0 in release, so the version bump is to 1.8.1, 1.8.2, ...

Meanwhile, in devel you were at 1.9.0, so the version bumps are 1.9.1, 1.9.2, ...

The solution to your current dilemma is to bump the version of the RELEASE_3_11 branch to 1.8.1. But beware that this will be your last shot at committing to the RELEASE_3_11 branch, because commits to the 3_11 branch will stop tomorrow -- I'd only bump the release version if this were an important bug fix, and you were sure you'd got it right.

'devel' will become 'release' on October 27 (see https://bioconductor.org/developers/release-schedule/) when the BIOCONUCTOR team will create a new 'RELEASE_3_12' branch from your current 'devel' branch. The 3_12 release will have version 1.10.0. the 'devel' branch will also be incremented, to 1.11.0. Subsequently, your version bumps are 1.10.1, 1.10.2, ... in RELEASE_3_12, and 1.11.1, 1.11.2, ... in devel.

        Sorry to be a pain but I'm getting in quite a muddle - probably due to
    inexperience as a developer.
        So basically, I have made a small but important change to my package
    drawProteins. The addition of 10 lines to the function extract_feat_acc()
    in file called extract_from_api.R
        I have made these changes to my master on Github (V 1.9.0) and pushed
    upstream to Bioconductor, I think...
        I have tried to make these changes to RELEASE_3_11 as I thought that
    was what was required. However, it doesn't seem to allow me to change
    the Version numbers. However, as I say I have got confused...
        I hope I am making sense.
        Any advice or help would be great. I've spent the last number of hours
    trying to work all this out with very little success :-(
    Thanks in advance,

    Paul Brennan
