[Bioperl-l] bioperl 1.6

I am initiating the process towards getting a bioperl 1.6 released.   
However, we unfortunately have a ton of bugs which need to be fixed.

What I would like is some help in categorizing bugs into ones that are  
blocking (i.e. represents an issue or problem which needs to be  
addressed, thus preventing a release) vs. non-blocking (can be fixed  
on the main trunk and in a stable point release).  Also, for the non- 
blocking ones it would be nice to know which should be placed at the  
top of the to-fix pile.  If needed we can add tickets to the queue for  
issues that need to be addressed; test coverage and similar issues  
come to mind.

Speaking of, I would like to get test coverage running; should this be  
set up on portal?  I may have my hands full with the bug fixes, so if  
anyone would like to step up and take care of that it would be a  
tremendous help.
