For anyone that is maintaining a Bioconductor mirror/rsync please make any necessary updates within the next two weeks regarding location / legacy Bioconductor releases.

Starting last year, Bioconductor has moved archived versions of Bioconductor off the AWS cloudfront instance. Syncing to legacy releases of Bioconductor is not allowed and wasted effort as once Bioconductor freezes a release, no maintainer is allowed to make changes to that Bioconductor branch ever.  We would notify mirrors if any package has to be removed because of any violations and they would have to be removed manually.  Several of you have noticed this switch with Bioconductor versions <= 3.14.  Noticing that your rsync resulted in an empty repository.  In 2 weeks, May 10th we will begin the process of moving both 3.15 and 3.16 off into the archive.  If you have set up your rsync to use numerical indications and/or with the --delete flag,  you may need to adjust your rsync commands to keep a legacy version of Bioconductor and not have it completely removed.  Please make any adjustment by May 10th!


Thank you
