Dear all,I am trying to run 
BiocCheck("/home/package_name", list(`no-check-vignettes`=TRUE))
There is no error but I am getting the following warning.
[1] "The following files are over 5MB in size: 'dataset/Caenorhabditis_elegans.WBcel235.dna.chromosome.I.fa'....."
This as well as other data like .gff files, that are being used for the reference based assembly are all much more than 5mb.
But the total package size is less than 500mb.
Is it essential that each file within the package is less than 5mb. If so, it would be very kind if anyone could suggest how to reduce the size of the genomic data files.

Wating for your valuable suggestions
Thanking you.
With regards,Claris Baby
