Dear all,

Just a word to say that when BioPerl 1.6 is released, the package in Debian
unstable/testing can be quickly updated, and a backport can be made for the
stable distribution.

However, it would make my task easier if the following file conflict would be
resloved. GBrowse and BioPerl are shiping copies of the same modules:


This is an obstacle to proper packaging, as on Debian system two packages are
not supposed to deliver the same file.

Have a nice day,
