[Biojava-l] Problems (slight) with the Biojava code in CVS
Thu, 3 Feb 2000 17:15:28 +0000
Sorry, I've just gone and demonstrated how awkward moving
directories in CVS can be. The correct version of the acedb
packages is in src/org/acedb. All the rest are mistakes,
and you can safely delete them.
For anyone else, don't worry -- I've now removed the offending
directories from CVS. New copies you check out should follow
the new directory layout, and ought to build fine.
