Scott, Lincoln, et al,

We are gearing up for another developer release (v. 1.5.2, with a target
date for RC1 by Sept 15th).  Sendu Bala is taking up the helm of Release
Pumpkin for this one.  We hope to continue points releases up to the next
stable release (v1.6, which we would like to get out by summer 2007).

We had some questions about Bio::DB::SeqFeature (for GFF3 support).  Is the
current implementation sufficiently stable for this release?  We haven't
heard much about it (besides the commit messages via Bioperl-guts) and
didn't know what test files and test cases were available.
