[Bioperl-l] [Gmod-gbrowse] GMOD PPM repository not working

Scott,

This popped up, for some reason, when I tried to install a perl module
(Error.pm); maybe it has something to do with the reason PPM can't 'see'
GMOD's repository.  It crashes PPM pretty nicely!  Looks like the home page
for GMOD, so maybe Sourceforge is redirecting things and this messes with
PPM?
