Dear Bioc developers,

I submitted a package 3 days ago and the build report returned TIMEOUT for Windows and macOS.

Then I included donttest{} in the example for a function that was taking too long to run, but now it is returning ERROR (http://bioconductor.org/spb_reports/cageminer_buildreport_20210709105948.html). See below:

    * ERROR: At least 80% of man pages documenting exported objects
      must have runnable examples. The following pages do not:
      mine_candidates.Rd, score_genes.Rd
    * NOTE: Usage of dontrun{} / donttest{} found in man page examples.
      14% of man pages use one of these cases.
      Found in the following files:

As you can see in the NOTE, these 2 functions represent 14% of the exported functions. Thus, 86% of the functions have runnable examples. Why is the build report saying that <80% have runnable examples?

Best regards,
