Hi Lori,

As I had indicated in personal communication, my BioPlex package https://bioconductor.org/packages/BioPlex is currently listed as a software package, but it would actually be more appropriate to list it as an experiment data package. In addition, I would like to add ExperimentHub resources to the package. Is there a process for changing the classification of the package from "software" to "experiment data"?

I understood that I would need to update the biocViews of my package accordingly to include data package-specific views and ExperimentHub-specific views, is that something that I should do BEFORE or AFTER, the Bioc team internally changes which manifest the package is listed under?

Thanks & Best,
