Release candidates for Bioperl 1.5.1 is up -I've not tagged anything  
in CVS so commits should continue to be made to the repository HEAD:


Tests pass for me on OSX with some, but not all dependancies installed.

I do see this for t/OntologyStore.t and a failed test --
MSG: [5/5] tried to fetch http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/ 
*checkout*/song/ontology/so.definition?rev=HEAD, but server threw  
500.  re

t/OntologyStore.t                6    4  66.67%  3-6
125 subtests skipped.
Failed 1/220 test scripts, 99.55% okay. 4/9916 subtests failed,  
99.96% okay.

I believe aspects of this test should be disabled without  

I think the Changes file and README will need to be checked over and  
corrected for this release.

Can folks check over for any test failures.  I believe RestrictionIO  
is going to fail on perl 5.6.x but I don't know exactly what the  
workaround is - other than detect perl version and skip tests where  

Can anyone speak up for bioperl-run and bioperl-ext as to whether or  
not we can tag and put these out as developer release as well?  I  
need someone to help out with testing these packages and getting them  
ship-shape for a release too.
