## Notes from Q&A

• This one had a lot of preprocessing which is in the inst/extdata folder. The data documentation is in R/data.R. I don’t recommend putting all the data background into one R file. It drove me nuts.
• For my paper, I had an appendix with the data information. To write that, I wrote a script to process the Rd files in the man folder into a Rmd document. So although writing the data documentation was time-consuming, it saved me a lot of time when writing the paper.
• For the paper tables and figures, I used library(SardineForecast). That ensured that all figures and tables used the same and most recent data. There were a number of big data changes that happened in revision, and not having a data package would have made updating the paper much harder.
