install_git tries to install BH although no related dependency

I have a package with the following configuration of imports in DESCRIPTION:

Imports: data.table, magrittr, RODBC, devtools, git2r, rstudioapi

The package is on GitHub. Now whenever I want to install it via install_git like devtools::install_git(gitlink, dependencies = TRUE repos = '') I get the Installing 1 packages: BH message whereby apparently the mentioned package should be installed.

Since I have issues installing BH, I would like to avoid that.


  • Is there any way to specify that I would like to avoid installing BH? For example in DESCRIPTION or arguments to install_git.
  • Why does R attempt to install BH in the first place - I cannot see any related package really?
