[Bioc-devel] Devel version of R for package development

Hello all,

I had a question about package development using the devel version of bioconductor. We are encouraged to add dependence to the version of R that is used by the devel branch of Bioconductor, e.g. R version 4.1. This means developing using a version of R that is not released yet. Users downloading our package from Github get the following error message.
Do we revert to the current R version after the package is out of the development stage? Or are we supposed to leave the dependence on the devel version of R?

> install_github("https://github.com/hendriau/Summix.git")

Installing package into �C:/Users/Gregory/Documents/R/win-library/4.0�
(as �lib� is unspecified)
ERROR: this R is version 4.0.3, package 'Summix' requires R >= 4.1
Error: Failed to install 'Summix' from GitHub:
  (converted from warning) installation of package �C:/Users/Gregory/AppData/Local/Temp/RtmpMTpKWs/file3ce813c62fbf/Summix_0.99.9.tar.gz� had non-zero exit status

Thank you,
