A reasonable strategy is to create a branch ('master' for submission) that contains just the package source; use another branch for additional functionality.

After submission, your package is cloned to the git.bioconductor.org repository and you could maintain it from an arbitrary branch in your repository, so your github 'master' could again contain arbitrary files (branches are easily renamed in git).

    Bioconductor Guidelines for package submission, the repo should not contain
    unnecessary files other than the required for package installation.

    These files are essential for our continuous integration process. I want to
    know if we should remove them before submitting to Bio, or is it ok if we
    left them?.
