Thank you for your advice Nitesh and Lori,

To expand on my issue with the Bioconductor Git Credentials site, when I try to activate my account, I get this message.

"k.patel5 using newcastle.ac.uk is not associated with a maintainer of a Bioconductor package. Please check the spelling or contact bioc-devel using r-project.org for help."

​The email used here is the one which is attached to the package.

In Addition to Nitesh's comments:

Please do not push the version to 1.0.0 yourself.  This will be done at the time of release by the core team.  Continue to increment z of verion x.y.z.   For example 0.99.5.

For now,  you have to wait for a nightly build to view the results of the build/check.

Information on timing of build report and how long from push to viewing is summarized at the top of this page:
Remember new builds will only register with a valid version bump.

You could always create a temporary directory and try checking the code out from git.bioconductor.org to see if the changes got successfully pushed to the server.  Or check out the RSS feed

Subject: [Bioc-devel] Few questions of maintaining a new bioconductor package

Dear Bioconductor team,

I've recently had my package, TimiRGeN, accepted into bioconductor and have a few questions on the maintenance side of things.

1) I am ready to push a newer version of the package. Will I have to set the version to 1.0.0 now? Currently it is version 0.99.4158.

2) Once pushed, how can I check if the build has been successful? Will I have to wait and see if it has passed the nightly builds on build/checkResults? Or is there a faster method.

3) I would like to set up a new SSH key and use this to maintain my package. To do this I will need to activate my account on Bioconductor Git Credentials, but I do not remember setting up a password for this.

Any help in these matters would be great.
