[Bioc-devel] Data Package Size Issues (.idat and .rda)

I am preparing a data package and using the minfiData package as a
reference.  The .idat files in extdata and the .rda file in data are
both present in both the compressed tarball source and the installed
copy directory (in my case, under ~/R/x86-64.../3.0/minfiData).  Isn't
this redundant?  Is there a way to have the prospective user only
download the .rda files?

Sorry if my question is misguided and thanks in advance for your help.
