The problem with missing BioC dependencies can be ignored as well as the 
R-devel Windows error. THe latter will be auto-resolved, the BioC stuff 
depends on the fact that CRAN upgraded to BioC 3.6 which is in 
development and will be released before R-devel, hence we check against 
it, but it is rather instable and sometimes we cannot intsall the BioC 
packagess yet.
