Please feel free to also comment directly on your issue for your reviewer to assist.

The packages not being available on windows is likely on our end and you can ignore for now.

System files should not be git tracked. They should be remove using git remove and then committed up.
git rm <file>
git commit -a

Subject: [Bioc-devel] Error on BiocCheckGitClone and Windows build

Dear All,

I recently submitted a package to Bioconductor and got this error message
as part of the reply email. I am not sure what to do about it.

The two files are git tracked,  but they are also named in .Rbuildignore so
I felt they should have been avoided. This is my first experience with
Bioconductor so any help would be appreciated.

Furthermore, there are errors related to dependencies on the windows build.
Should I worry about these?
