In my description file, I have an example data package in Suggests: that I've deleted from my library to test what the user who doesn't have it will experience.

However, R CMD check won't even pass my package :

Why would it have to be installed, if it's only a data package, that isn't needed in any of my code ? The manual also says "In particular, large packages providing “only” data for examples or vignettes should be listed in ‘Suggests’ rather than ‘Depends’ in order to make lean installations possible."
