The deadline for fixing packages in preparation for the release is this Friday October 28th. All packages should be installing, building, and checking without ERROR in the Bioconductor build report.  While you can continue to push changes past this date, this ensures all changes are reflected in the build report.  Package that continue to show ERRORs in the build report after the release will be consideration for deprecation.

Please also remember to update your NEWS files for any information about changes to your packages during this last development cycle.  Bioconductor collates all package news files as part of the release announcement.

For clarification:
The release 3.16 branch has not yet been created.  Please continue to update master/devel branch.
Next week when the release occurs the core team will automatically create the RELEASE_3_16 branch on git.bioconductor.org but until that time the only branch accessible is master.  Bioconductor will also handle bumping the y of a package version x.y.z  on release day.
