[Bioc-devel] Action for Uncompressed Data Warning

My general approach is to make the build report as clean as possible, so 
that (a) it's easy to see true positives and (b) I'm not provoked by 
notes / warnings that I think of as irritating more than useful each 
time I look at the build report :) . So yes, I'd recompress the data.
