I'd suggest putting the data on a public dataverse server like this one
from some obscure institution called "Harvard":


and then it should be accessible via the database R package:


with the added bonus that it gets a DOI, metadata, access from Python and
any other language with a dataverse API interface.

What don't you get? Visibility on CRAN - but its so crowded now that nobody
can see you anyway.
