[Bioperl-l] Contributing to biomoose

I'm actually working on Bio::Moose::Annotation along with tests (I  
have SimpleValue, Reference, Comment, Target, and DBLink working).  
I'll try committing that tonight, but first I'll take a look at your  
code and try to make sure ours merge properly. I don't see any  
conflicts thus far.

A ROADMAP is a good idea; I'll definitely work towards that.  As for  
specific modules, there are lots of places to start:

Bio::Align* and Bio::SimpleAlign (just the basic functionality)?

The IO parsers should fall into place rather quickly once the basic  
objects are in place, I wouldn't worry about them for the moment; we  
need basic implementations and tests.  Bio::Annotation::Collection is  
where I'm going next.

Just make sure to 'use Bio::Moose' or 'use Bio::Moose::Role', and have  
the namespace in Bio::Moose so it doesn't conflict with regular  
BioPerl, e.g. 'Bio::Moose::Tree', roles maybe as  
'Bio::Moose::Roles::Tree'.  We will need to test these against their  
BioPerl counterparts sometime.

I'll also add an AUTHORS file, so add your name in when you can.


PS: Based on our recent discussions on-list about breaking up BioPerl,  
I'm wondering whether we'll need an eventual Bio::MooseX.  May be  
something to think about.
