Hi Mike,

Yes, let's go the ExperimentHub route. The focus is on detailed
documentation / real use cases so the vignette you describe sounds like
a good fit.

Essentially you'll put a package together that is very similar to an
experimental data package with a few extra files described in the
ExperimentHubData vignette:


Let me know when you've got the data objects ready and I'll put them in
S3. Once that's done we'll test the package functions and put the
package through a review on the new tracker.
