[Bioc-devel] TIMEOUT - Can't manage to pass tests to long tests

Dear Bioconductor team,

I got a TIMEOUT tag on my package (ChromSCape) because test checks were too long:

* checking tests ...
  Running testthat.R ERROR
TIMEOUT: R CMD check exceeded 14 mins

Therefore, I followed documentation to transfer part of my tests to long tests (https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/long-tests/). I created longtests directory + added a .BBSoptions file with 'RunLongTests: TRUE' , moved my long tests to the longtests directory and pushed with a version bump. The only tests left on the 'tests' directory run in  150 sec on my personal Linux (running devtools::test()).

However, after the push,  the R CMD CHECK still timed out and the testing running time was exactly the same as before I removed the tests. See (http://bioconductor.org/spb_reports/ChromSCape_buildreport_20200928090448.html). It seems that the checks are still done on the scripts in longtests directory.

Do you have any insights on what I should do to actually make them long tests and not timeout ?

Thank you in advance,


PS: the R CMD check commands actually outputs:

Found the following hidden files and directories:
These were most likely included in error. See section Package
