[Bioperl-l] No version numbers on bioperl pms.

I assume that you are aware that your BioPerl pms are not versioned.

This seems unusual to me, however I am no perl head.

BUT, it can cause problems (which took me a LONG time to understand, see 
previous comment about my lack of perl cool points) when I was trying to 
set up GMOD. What was happening that when Lincolns Makefile.PL was 
demanding such and such version of GFF etc, makemaker was going off, and 
looking for such and such version number, was getting nothing, and 
saying that I didnt have GFF at all. The newest makemaker does not do 
this, it gives out about not understanding the version number or something.

But, I don't know, I have looked at some other ordinary pms and they all 
seem to have VERSION numbers. So, I just thought that I would post this 
  up here.

All the best,
