a few points:

Normally only one person has maintainer access to a package this currently was Anusha Nagari <anusha.nagari using utsouthwestern.edu>.  Should they also retain maintainer access?

Anusha was assigned because that is who is listed with Authors using R.  You currently have a mixure of using Authors using R and Maintainer/Author field.  Please remove Author/Maintainer fields and only use Authors using R.

In a normal procedure the currently listed maintainer would request the switch or additional access.  Since I see you listed in the Maintainer field, we can ignore this step for this situation. I will need to create an account on our GitCredentials where you can manage your ssh keys for access.  We can link a github account for access.  Do you have a personal github account you would like associated with; if so please provide your github username?

Subject: [Bioc-devel] New maintainer for package - Updating a R package and pushing the commit


I'm the new maintainer of the groHMM package which is having issues in its build.

In that view I would like to update the package but it won't allow me since my email is not on file with the maintainer of bioconductor package.

Can you please list the steps to have me listed as a maintainer and update the package on bioconductor/git.

Let me know.
