Hey guys,

I have added a link as per Chris's nice suggestion for keeping track
on whats going on regarding the migration:
http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/TestMoreProgress
There's also a link to this page from the project priority list.
However, adding our signature for each module etc , in my humble
opinion, seems tedious. May i suggest we just split up the list in
'starting letter sections' and each one does his part.
I volunteer to work on all tests starting with the letter R down to
the bottom of the list.

Let me know if this makes sense or not. I will work on
removing/flagging all the files that have already been migrated on
that list as well.
