It is certainly worth keeping in mind (especially if BioPerl
does move to github). While we are on this topic, to me
the nicest parts about github are two things:

(*) Easy tracking of other forks of a project (or rather,
other forks also on github)

(*) Building on this, the network diagram. I imagine a similar
figure *could* be made as a standalone tool. If such a thing
exists, I'd be interested to try it.

Yeah - that was a while back, but in my mind it was just a
continuation of the old thread.
