[Bioperl-l] release candidate 4 (hopefully the last!),

Several bug fixes went in last week so I've made what I hope to be
the last release candidate before 1.5.1 goes out. Brian and I have
been in the process of updating the module documentation so that the
bug-info email points to the bugzilla page only. It is boring and
tedious so we've not really done all of them yet, but I don't see
this as a showstopper for a developer release.
Files are here:
I have put a tag in on CVS called bioperl-release-1-5-1-rc4 in
bioperl-live, bioperl-run-release-1-5-1-rc4 in bioperl-run, bioperl-
ext-release-1-5-1-rc4 bioperl-ext. If you make any changes that
should go in 1.5.1 you will let us know and we will need to make a
branch and apply the changes to the branch only. I will only make
the release from the branch now.
This will not be the branch for 1.6 but I expect we need to discuss a
plan for that. Still positions available for a release master/
pumpking for the 1.6 release. I want 1.6 to go out in Q1 2006, but
willing to hear debate on the topic.
Please also have a look at the Changes file, if there is something
missing, add it!
Hilmar, I want to make a bioperl-db release, is this from the HEAD or
is there a branch? If you want to make the release files please do,
otherwise let me know which tags it should have (and if you are ready).
In terms of version number, I don't care too much if it is 1.5.1 or
something else. We just need to document it on a website/FAQ. I
guess I would lean towards not calling it 1.5.1 but I don't care that
I will plan to make the release on Thursday or Friday of this week
(13-Oct or 14-Oct) if there are no holdups.
