I am preparing a new package for first submission to Bioconductor. Bioccheck is failing with a requirement that I register on this website, which I have already done. Earlier this year during development I did not have this problem, but now when I locally run:

R CMD BiocCheck mypackage.tar.gz

on R version 3.3.0, Bioccheck 1.8.2, on OSX, this returns

* Checking for support site registration...
    * REQUIRED: Maintainer must register at the support site; visit
      https://support.bioconductor.org/accounts/signup/ .

The DESCRIPTION file contains the lines

Package: MyPackageName
Type: Package
Title: Title of the package
Version: 0.99.0
Date: 2016-10-25
Author: David Quigley
Maintainer: David Quigley <david.a.quigley@gmail.com>

This email address matches my current registration on this web site.  Is there anything obviously wrong here? Thanks.

Hi,

I have the same issue with my package. I have been registered to this website and subscribed to the devel-mail-list for months now, but BiocCheck fails to recognize me.

Checking my email like Mr. Ramos did also doesn't work for me. I checked correct spelling and everything seems to check out. Except that is does not - and the fact that I can't find more reports of this issue implies that I am doing sth. wrong. Does anyone have a suggestion for me?

Hi M.Olbrich M.Olbrich

Only the Bioconductor Build System (BBS) can check for subscription to the devel mailing list because it requires password access. I can work on making that check more interpretable in BiocCheck.

As for the Bioconductor Support Site (BSS), you can check for yourself via the email and URL method shown below i.e., enter your email address after https://support.bioconductor.org/api/email/ while replacing the @ with %40.

Make sure that the email in the package DESCRIPTION file matches with the one you used to register to the BSS.

I hope this helps.

Otherwise, please provide the output that you are seeing.

Best,

Marcel

I have the same problem. I have been registered here for over 7 years and yet BioCheck returns the same error as above and

https://support.bioconductor.org/api/email/M.Gierlinski%40dundee.ac.uk

returns false

Yes, I double and triple checked this. Also, the above API check with my e-mail address returns false.

Note that this query returns no results https://code.bioconductor.org/search/search?q=Gierlinski+file%3ADESCRIPTION it should return your file if the package is in Bioconductor

The package is not in Bioconductor, I want to submit it (when finished working on it). The issue is that despite being registered here the API e-mail check

https://support.bioconductor.org/api/email/M.Gierlinski%40dundee.ac.uk

returns false. Because of this BiocCheck fails on my package with the same error as at the top of this topic.

It looks like you're registered.

This shouldn't be an error. Have you updated your BiocCheck?

Thanks Marcel. I don't think I updated bioconductor between when things worked and now. Ten minutes ago I updated to bioconductor 3.4, problem is still present. Bioccheck is at version 1.10.0, the latest greatest. I suppose next step is the Bioccheck source code.

Maybe you registered with another E-mail adress than the one you mentionned in your package DESCRIPTION ?
