Thanks!  I think I've processed the mass-update now.  It looks like we
have only gained dependencies. (Not a lot though).

I kept the SVN repository URL for Bioconductor for now, instead of the
Github mirror.  AFAIU, Bioconductor is going to transition to Git (and
Github) before the next release, which deprecates the
'Bioconductor-mirror' repository.  Since package maintainers get the
heads-up and probably have to take some action when this transition
occurs, I will make sure we transition without service disruption. :)

Kind regards,
Roel Janssen
