Both BioPerl.org and BioJava.org are now pointing at
GitHub Pages sites.

That's working now, meaning most of the content is usable.
There are other minor issues, but as far as I can tell, nothing
we couldn't fix after making the switch to GitHub pages live.


Please do have a look round the conversion to see if you
can spot any problems with it, relevant pages:

This is where I am most hoping for help, tracking issue:

On a related point, I don't think there is much point having a
snapshot of the code under the /SRC/ folder - the only reason
I've used it have been for a simple HTTP link to test files or the
licence. I think we can put a place holder page up directing
people to GitHub instead?
