Then maybe the more generic Bio::Microarray namespace is the way to  
go, with the module name Bio::Microarray::Tools:: MitoChip.  If  
needed other tools can be added as needed.

It all depends on how much you intend to contribute; if you plan on  
adding to it over time we can talk about starting up a developer

I tested it out and received the email at both addresses (as it  
states).  If you respond to either email it should implement the  
change in three days time.  If it doesn't you can email support at  
open.bio.org to see if there is a problem.
