Yes, I am referring to the core package.  Called perl-bioperl in the
Fedora naming scheme.

Yes I am sticking to the latest official release 1.5.2_102.  The
package is here:


and installable via yum (on the development branch) using:

$ yum install perl-bioperl

The FC-6 package will be available soon.
