First, apologies about not getting on this sooner. It's shaping up
to be a busy year!
The new package: How about Bio::Expression::Tools::MitoChip? My
reasoning: I don't think it's necessary to define a new
Bio::Resequencing namespace for just one module; my inclination is
towards using Bio::Expression namespace as Bio::Tools have been
traditionally reserved for output parsers. I am unsure what the
Bio::Expression status is (very little is documented, no tests are
written, nothing on the mail list archives); maybe Allen can answer
that? I don't see anything that precludes you from using that
namespace as long as your tools are fairly well-defined (they are)
and have tests (they do).
Also, your module deals with doing one specific thing (extraction and
incorporation of information about redundant fragments) for the Affy
MitoChip. It might be worth genericizing the class a bit so that you
can add new parser or analysis methods w/o having to define new
classes to deal with the same Mitochip data.
Mail list: The mail list subscription page (http://bioperl.org/
mailman/listinfo/bioperl-l) allows you to subscribe or change
subscription options (at the bottom of the page).
Bugzilla: if you are logged into Bugzilla under your old email, there
is an option at the bottom of the page (Edit : Prefs) where you can
change your email address and other preferences.
