Thanks for the e-mail and offers of code. Always happy to have other
folks involved with the project.

Is the code available on GitHub to get a better sense of all the
functionality it supports? Do you have an idea where it would fit best?
As a tair submodule inside of Bio.Entrez, or somewhere else?

Following the mailing list for discussions on current projects is the
best way to get a sense of what different folks are working on. The
issue tracker also has open issues and features that could use attention
if anything there strikes your fancy:


Hope this helps,
