[Bioc-devel] Submission of packages located at within a repository

Dear Bioconductor team,

we would like to submit two R packages (software and accompanying data package) that are located in a git repository jointly with a Python package that one of them depends upon.
These two R packages are located at 
- https://github.com/bioFAM/MOFA/tree/master/MOFA
- https://github.com/bioFAM/MOFA/tree/master/MOFAdata
within the repository https://github.com/bioFAM/MOFA.

However, the submission via the git submission system fails as it requires the package to sit at https://github.com/yourusername/yourpackagename <https://github.com/yourusername/yourpackagename>.
We would like to avoid breaking up the repository https://github.com/bioFAM/MOFA into separate repositories for each package as they are inter-dependent and new developments or fixes often involve changes to both the python package (mofapy) and the R package (MOFA) (e.g. having common branches for the two packages is very useful).

Is there a way to submit the packages at their current paths, i.e. make the submission system look at https://github.com/bioFAM/MOFA/tree/master/MOFA and /MOFAdata instead of https://github.com/bioFAM/MOFA? If not, do you have other suggestions how to solve this without breaking up the repository?

Thanks for your help!
