           Summary: Bio.Entrez.epost is using an HTTP GET not an HTTP POST
           Product: Biopython
           Version: Not Applicable
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Main Distribution
        AssignedTo: biopython-dev at biopython.org
        ReportedBy: biopython-bugzilla at maubp.freeserve.co.uk

Following from a query on our mailing list suggesting Bio.Entrez.epost is
failing with long ID lists, I looked a little more closely at the code and it
is actually using an HTTP GET instead of an HTTP POST (which would avoid the
long URL problem).


We can still use urllib to do this with its data argument...
