[Bioperl-l] Splitting out Bio::Microarray

We have had the Bio::Microarray code in bioperl-live for a while now, but it hasn't been released as part of bioperl core in the 1.6 series mainly b/c the code has been under active development. Seeing as a paper has been recently published for the code, though (which indicates to me it's in a finished state), and seeing as we have been talking for a while about splitting out specific focused code into separate distributions, I vote we move the various Bio::Microarray modules either into their own separate distribution or into the bioperl-microarray distribution. I also suggest Marian undertake primary or secondary maintainer status of that code for official CPAN releases. Marian, let me know if you need help along those lines.
I also suggest we eventually do the same for the PhyloNetwork modules down the line, and that we steer users who want to submit new publication-focused bioperl-reliant code into their own CPAN distributions.
If no one has complaints, I'll work on moving the code out over the next week, likely into bioperl-microarray.
