Maybe Sendu can answer more specifically, but I believe the extra  
designation referred to the release candidate (of which bioperl-core  
was the only one with '102').  You definitely want the core package.   
The other ones with '100' are other bioperl-related distributions  
which require the core package but have additional functionality  
(BioSQL-related functions, wrapper modules, etc.).
