BioPerl and the Google Summer of Code

(original post here)

In addition to The Perl Foundation being accepted into GSoC 2010, BioPerl is now also part of the Google Summer of Code! The Open Bioinformatics Foundation, which also includes BioPython, BioRuby, and others, has been accepted into the Google Summer of Code for 2010. We are actively looking for students interested in OBF-related bioinformatics projects; new ideas are welcome. Project ideas and other details can be found here:

This isn't the first year BioPerl has been part of GSoC. A successful project was recently published by 2008 GSoC student Mira Han for developing a phyloXML parser for BioPerl.

Update: Rough project idea for use of Modern Perl tools or Perl 6 with BioPerl now added!

Website hatred or...

I'm absolutely amazed at the stones being lobbed at the new perl6 site.

Okay, that's fine, not everyone will like it. That's a given for just about anything. But why so much negativity for a simple website? Or is it really directed at Perl 6 in general? From some of the comments it seems to be the more the latter, using the former as an excuse to say something. John Napiorkowski had an interesting post related to this a while back.

(No, really. I want to know. Comments welcome, particularly if there any rational, reasonable, clear-headed, non-conspiracy-theory-tainted ones. Just trying to get a handle on where the hate is coming from).
