I think we may be able to work around this.  In the past we fetched the
DESCRIPTION file directly via HTTP.  This wasn’t possible for data
packages as they were not stored in the shared SVN repository, and the
DESCRIPTION files thus were not available via HTTP.

When Bioconductor retired their SVN repository we switched to
downloading the target tarball and extracting the DESCRIPTION file from
there.  We aren’t doing this for experiment or data packages yet, but I
think we can easily fix this now.

I’ll give this a shot soon.
