Hi all, salut Cyril,

After discussion with the Bioperl Upstream, the priority of most
recommended packages will be downgraded to "Suggests". The only to be
kept in the "Recommends" field will be: libio-string-perl, libwww-perl,
liburi-perl and libxml-writer-perl. Also, it has been confirmed that
notwithstanding its numbering as development release, 1.5.2 is the
de facto stable release of Bioperl. Therefore the next upload will close
this bug and open the way to testing migration for bioperl-1.5.2.

Have a nice day,
