I am one of the Biopython developers, and am also a Ubuntu user. It
is great that you guys package this all up for our Debian and Ubuntu
Biopython users - thanks you.
I've just noticed that the name and description of the
python-biopython-sql package is rather misleading, e.g. see
(or the description shown in Synaptic Package Manager):
> SQL support for the Biopython library
> This is the python2.2 version of the Biopython-SQL library which provides support for SQL.
Its probably a bad idea to change the package name now, but I would
have called it python-biopython-biosql. Also it isn't tied to Python
2.2 in any way. My suggestion:
> Biopython support for the BioSQL database schema
> This is the Biopython interface to a BioSQL database (see www.biosql.org
> for details). BioPerl, BioJava and BioRuby also provide their own BioSQL
> interfaces onto the same shared SQL schema.
It would also be nice if all the python-biopython-sql package
webpages/metadata could include www.biosql.org (in addition to
www.biopython.org) on the "External Resources" section.
