Are a couple extra commands needed at
for experimental data packages? I followed the instructions here for
curatedOvarianData, but got GitHub warnings on push:

remote: warning: GH001: Large files detected. You may want to try Git Large
File Storage - https://git-lfs.github.com.
remote: warning: See http://git.io/iEPt8g for more information.
remote: warning: File data/TCGA_eset.rda is 53.10 MB; this is larger than
GitHub's recommended maximum file size of 50.00 MB

So I followed the instructions at https://git-lfs.github.com/:

git lfs track "*.rda"
git add .gitattributes
git commit -a

Does this seem correct, and is there anything else to know for experimental
data packages with large files?
