OK so ideally the GUI should use 2 sets of repos:
- one for _displaying_ the list of Bioconductor packages:
NB: Note that having omegahat and lindsey will help to prevent
questions like "Hey my package xxx says it depends on SSOAP but
I don't see SSOAP in the list and it's not in CRAN neither!".
Having omegahat and lindsey adds less than 10 packages anyway...
- one for _installing_ the selected packages:
same as above + http://cran.fhcrc.org
And the installation should be done with 'dep=TRUE'.
Is that OK with you Mac OS X GUI maintainers?
Thanks in advance!
