[Bioc-devel] Update existing packages and change name

Hi Sokratis,

Unfortunately you can't rename a package ... and there is no such thing as a 'sub package'. Maybe you meant sub-package terms of dependencies. If you have new data to add that's independent of what's in pathprintGEOData you can create a new data package.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'considerably more data'. The pathprintGEOData package is currently 22MG:

~ >du -h pathprintGEOData_1.4.0.tar.gz
22M    pathprintGEOData_1.4.0.tar.gz

We don't support git LFS yet in the experimental data repo. If you plan on making the package(s) very large we should consider making a ExperimentHub package where the data can be stored in S3.

Hey all, I am updating 2 of my packages (pathprint & pathprintGEOData) with
considerably more data and a few code updates. I also want to change the
name of the data package to reflect the new content. Can the package name
be changed or do I have to create new sub-packages? Thanks in advance.
