Well, all those regressions are because they can't install bioperl which is their dependency. There is no issue on themselves or in upstream bioperl. The issue is that Debian's bioperl claims to have recommend dependency on bioperl-run which does not actually exist in upstream anymore. > Thus I admit I see no real profit in upgrading bioperl-run at this > release stage.

But can you remove the current bioperl from sid which is causing all those issues on the other packages? Thank you David
