Yes but only for the master branch (BioC 3.16). The RELEASE_3_15 branch 
got frozen recently and can no longer be touched.

Also package versions can only go up. Note that the current devel 
version of  TSCAN (1.35.1) never got published (i.e. it didn't 
propagate), so, technically, you won't need to bump the version after 
you fix the package. Even though it wouldn't hurt to do so (i.e. to bump 
to 1.35.2).
