[Bioc-devel] Can anyone reproduce this? Possible bug or typo in BiocManager:::.version_map() or upstream

It's because Bioconductor won't be building (supporting) R-4.2 (R-devel) until six months from now, even in the 'devel' branch of Bioconductor. Bioc 3.14 (once it becomes available after the Bioconductor release) will use R 4.1 and the table will be updated to have line 34 as 3.14 / 4.1. There will be an entry 3.15/4.2/future, but there won't be a 3.15...

    I get

    and this appears to be because of the last line in

    34 3.13  4.2      future <NA> <NA>

    Shouldn’t it say “3.14” in the second element of the last line?

    and I seem to have the most recent version of BiocManager as of today’s https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/BiocManager/index.html 


    Btw the result of

    > BiocManager:::.get_R_version()
    [1] ‘4.2.0’

    is probably technically not correct, as it’s r-devel.

    Kind regards
