I have updated the package manifest files to move BioPlex from software to data experiment. Please update the biocViews in the description as soon as possible

Hi Lori,

As I had indicated in personal communication, my BioPlex package https://secure-web.cisco.com/1M0Ol-q4grmap1gxOCeo1YCtQuJzCnpJgKoMmX1c8_2U6oHAC_e7dgcrdk78VJX8t5HMHJRC7VxldYKdR2pnTK15XZVqdIyKPWMc2uRRZbZzN68z6Z2FIKREC852xoe3xhY5TVjOsRAratuXkm0MX2sb246TpGnK-SP9EcE8LIUrJhDWVHqYXBOZomTgGkIQtM-Nffx_piMcMTZpJpmHuH_CV46RmfjdgaQQhPhI0yqSJo4G37UaZyRSMuPmUtsjrdYKno8AJH2SHfZf7toeINWXD_LvVuETGDaM9Dma9u3wsGxwqZSDXyxGdT8j3ZpBD/https%3A%2F%2Fbioconductor.org%2Fpackages%2FBioPlex 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,
