I can confirm that ReadSeq now builds nicely and the test runs fine.

In addition to the well-know RDP Classifier, SeqMatch,  and ProbeMatch, it includes newer tools including FrameBot, a frameshift co rrection and nearest neighbor assignment tool and Xander, our latest gene-targeted metagenomic assembler tool. It also includes many important utility functions useful in microbial ecological analysis. Most of these tools have been recently published and detailed tutorials or workflow are provided on GitHub.    

I agree that this would be really interesting.  However, I'd like to
point out that the download tarball remains basically empty.  As I said
while we would prefer tarballs in general in principle we could also
deal with Git clones as a fallback.  I do not think that delivering an
empty tarball is a good idea.  We had some previous discussion (about a
different problem) on our mentors mailing list.  May be this is of any


I can not promise when we will create packages of RDPTools but I can
confirm that I'll put it on our agenda.

Kind regards
