It works. Bliss.

Worth mentioning now on the list that the latest instructions are in


I've recommitted the the two changes I did on the experimental repo.

I had a small problem when editing the README text file:  git was not
showing differences between the original file and my edits. It kept saying

bala ~/src/bioperl-live> git diff README
diff --git a/README b/README
index 03685a8..8e20592 100644
Binary files a/README and b/README differ

The reason, of course, was that a hard to detect binary character had
slipped in to my edit.

Just so that you know when this happens to you...
