The sma author no longer wishes to maintain this package. The packges
beadarray and arrayQualityMetrics are Bioconductor packages that depend
on sma indirectly through other packages. The other packages are being
revised to no longer depend on sma, but this has not yet been completed.
The workaround is to manually install sma from its archive: download


and install.packages("sma_0.5.15.tar.gz", repos=NULL).

beadarray and arrayQualityMetrics are Bioconductor packages, so please
follow up on the Bioconductor mailing list
