[Biopython-dev] Bio.CDD, anyone?

Hi everybody,

Bio.CDD is a module with a parser for CDD (NCBI's Conserved Domain Database) records. The parser parses HTML pages from CDD's web site. Since the parser was written about six years ago, the CDD web site has changed considerably. Bio.CDD therefore cannot parse current HTML pages from CDD.

So I am wondering:
1) Is anybody using Bio.CDD?
2) Is anybody willing to update Bio.CDD to handle current HTML?
3) If not, can we deprecate it? There is not much purpose of having a parser for HTML pages from years ago.
