Hi bioc-devel,

I couldn�t find the answer to the following conundrum on the Bioc website: how do I change my Bioconductor pkg email address?

I need to fix a build error for slalom introduced with changes in knitr, but I cannot clone the developer version of the slalom package (git clone git using git.bioconductor.org:packages/slalom<mailto:git using git.bioconductor.org:packages/slalom>).

I looked at the FAQs and determined that I need to log in to the BiocCredentials app. Trying that doesn�t recognise my dmccarthy using svi.edu.au<mailto:dmccarthy using svi.edu.au> email address � I�m sure that�s because the email address associated with me for the slalom package is davis using ebi.ac.uk<mailto:davis using ebi.ac.uk->. Unfortunately my davis using ebi.ac.uk<mailto:davis using ebi.ac.uk> email address has been closed.

So it looks like I need to change my email address to log in to BiocCredentials, but I need to log in to BiocCredentials to make changes to the package, including my email address.

How do I crack this Catch-22 situation?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Best wishes,
