I'm getting ready to release an R package that makes use of some moderately large genome annotation files. (Let's say 500MB-1GB total) I'd like to host them somewhere other than our lab's website, because when I move on, I plan on continuing to maintain this package.
Scripts are easy to throw up onto github, google code, etc, but these larger files may be a problem. I know github, for example, limits the storage space available to its non-premium users.
So what's the best place to host these files long-term, given that I'd like the hosting to be free, accessible for download without intermediate screens (so my script can pull them down) and have reasonable tolerance for taking up storage space and bandwidth?
