BioPerl on Fedora 19...

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have noticed on the perl-devel-request list that dependancies for BioPerl have been broken for a few weeks. Is there a current maintainer for BioPerl? It's a pretty important package for people like me (not that I can't install it manually, but having it in the repo is a good thing), and I'd rather not see it dropped in Fedora 19. If anything, the bioinformatics software should be expanded in Fedora 19, not contracted :). A lot of computational research is done using Ubuntu, but that's largely due to having everything in the repository for convenience. Some programs aren't as apt to compile (HowTos)
