Hi developers,

A couple of days ago I moved the rowSums, colSums, rowMeans, colMeans generics
from *BiocGenerics* to *MatrixGenerics*, and this seems to break a lot of
packages on today's build report for devel, sorry for that. I didn't have
time to look closely at the damage caused by this change yet, but will do
it in a few days and repair as much as possible.

The fix is very simple. Packages that explicitly import these generrics
from BiocGenerics now need to import them from *MatrixGenerics* (they are
in *MatrixGenerics* >= 1.11.1). However, a lot of packages also fail
because they depend directly or indirectly on a package that tries to
import these generics from the old place. In this case, there's not much to
do, these packages will auto-repair when the packages they depend on get

Sorry for the inconvenience and let me know if you have any questions.
