Dear BioPerl Users and Developers,
I want to announce a addition in the leadership of BioPerl.
Christopher Fields and and Sendu Bala are now members of the BioPerl
Core developer group to recognize their ongoing leadership in the
project. Chris and Sendu were instrumental in the 1.5.2 Developer
release and have made a significant commitment and contribution to
the quality of the code and the documentation of the project. We
have invited them to be part of the core to recognize their work and
to feel comfortable to ask them to do more. ;-)
The Core group was established to insure that someone was responsible
for making code releases, vetting new developers for CVS write
accounts, and generally dealing with things that might otherwise slip
through the cracks. We are very excited to have more people
contributing to and maintaining the toolkit. We look forward to
their help along with all the other developers, as we work towards a
1.6 release release this year.
As always, while their is a need for some individuals to lead the
project, we encourage contributions from all levels of expertise to
improve the code, documentation, and tutorials of the project.
We plan to discuss the progress of the toolkit at this year's
Bioinformatics Open Source Conference held in Vienna, Austria in
conjunction with the SIG meetings at ISMB. We are trying to use
BOSC 2007 as a chance for the developers of Open Bioinformatics
Foundation sponsored and related projects to coordinate future
development and release cycles.
Jason Stajich on behalf of the Core developers
