AUTHOR COMMENTS: Pretty straightforward project update on the current
status of Biopython.  I like the additional mention of Docker here to help
ease installation and deployment.



AUTHOR COMMENTS: I like that this submission covers new features, general
code improvements and deployment / teaching tools. This is a well-used
project with an active developer community. Documentation on github and
project website is very good.


AUTHOR COMMENTS: Biopython is an important part of the bioinformatics
ecosystem, and it's great to see continued progress.

That said, the abstract does read as a set of release notes.  A little more
information about major developments (e.g. what the Docker images offer)
might be welcome, as would a brief mention of post-1.66 plans.
