I'm the maintainer of the ENCODExplorer package. We provide the metadatas
of the ENCODE project files in the `data/` section of the package.

The problem is that there are regularly new datasets and changes in the
previous dataset. I was wondering if it is OK to push new versions of the
metadatas even if the documentation mentions:
"Only bug fixes should be back-ported to the release branch. This is so
that users of the release branch have a stable environment in which to get
their work done."
