Dear All,

I have a slight question. Bioconductor requires a NEWS file in the submitted R package, so I just plainly insert a NEWS file. The reviewer suggests me to create one that is parsable by utils::news(). I read through the news() function, but I still don't know how to use the utils::news(). Could you kindly give some hints to use it?

Thank you very much!

This question is about package development, so you should ask on the BioC-devel mailing list.

You could also examine the NEWS pages of other packages for some inspiration:
