	Dear developers,

I am for the moment struggling to make MRS and DbFetch work as access 
methods. I installed the bug fixed from the ftp site.

MRS works ! But I note that currently you are using the Web interface, 
not the Web services, and that access is only by ID (not AC or other 
fields). Are you considering further developements ?

DbFetch does not work. I put in my .embossrc :

DB testdbfetch [ type: N method: dbfetch format: embl dbalias: embl
               url: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ws/services/Dbfetch ]

Did I miss something ?
By thz way, are there alternative DbFetch servers in the world ? If not, 
why not hard code the URL in the code, like you did for "entrez" ?

	Guy Bottu,
