[Bioperl-l] ListSummaries for May 10-31.

I could do something like that.  Right now I have a script that just grabs
the text from the web page:

http://bioperl.org/pipermail/bioperl-guts-l/2006-May/date.html

and uses regexes and hashes to sort everything and make some sense of the
noise.  The resolution for a bug isn't on that page but in the linked
message so I would need to grab the link from HTML, go to that page, then
get the resolution if there is one, so at the moment I just check each one
(thanks for the bug hunt Jason!).  I usually have to do a little touching up
afterwards, such as fix links and such, but the script really saves on time.
As you can tell, it's been a busy month!

I'm (very slowly) updating the script to go through the mail list threads
recursively but haven't really gotten anywhere with that yet.  Benchwork has
intervened yet again!
