[Rd] Data package questions

In process of creating data package from an existing one. The current package has both raw data files and the associated RData objects created from them. Currently, the data subdirectory is 1.5Mb and the extdata is 5.4Mb.

Never having created a data package before, how is this best done? Should the data package contain only the raw data, or the RData objects too (tightly coupled)? If the later, what (if anything) is added to the DESCRIPTION meta-information to denote the dependency? Should both packages suggest each other?
