With Steve's help I've set up Bugzilla so that das2 at portal.open-bio.org
is the primary owner of all problems.  This means people should be
able to update the web page and have copies of the changes sent
to the mailing list.

Except that it looks there's a minor change that needs to be
made to Mailman to allow bugzilla-daemon at portal.open-bio.org
to send email to the list.  I just asked Steve to look at that.

If anyone needs it, the Bugzilla password for das2 at portal.open-bio.org
is "das2-password"

In dasypus I changed the architecture to support different
formats for a given request, because that was the spec.  (Still
needed for the features.)  I also worked on code to be able to
probe the input stream from the server and change things if
there was a problem.  Eg, last week's version of the server
(haven't checked things this week) didn't emit proper XML.
I wanted to be able to patch it and work.  Based on my DAS/1
experience I know that that's not uncommon.

In the next week I plan to finish off the support for probing
and modifying the input stream, and get back to cleaning up
the spec based on the various changes in the bug db.

Here are the new bugs entered during the last week.
