I made some further changes yesterday to move libmuscle into a c++

More to the point, I have created a set of diffs against the 3.7

package on it.
The diff does not include source for files I added, such as the thread
storage class and the anchored profile-profile alignment function.
Robert, I would be delighted if you would consider basing future
muscle releases around the library refactorization. Please let me
know what else I can do to facilitate it.
I would totally support this.
BTW, Aaron, libGenome is now an official Debian package as you can see at
that's good news, it seems we are progressing :)
Hmmm, that's unfortunate. Yes, I had come across their project before
but never really considered that it might cause naming conflicts.
Perhaps they would want to rename to something like mauve-test? Or
maybe the aligner could be renamed mauve-aligner? I'd prefer to avoid
wisc-mauve since I'm now at the University of Queensland and Mauve may
move at some point.
Moreover I noticed that we might get some name space polution with Mauve:
Please have a look at
I do not know this other mauve project but wt least we might possibly
have to change the package name of your Mauve in Debian in case we
can not convince the other maintainer to change the name. Could you
perhaps suggest a useful name for the Debian package? I'd consider
something like wisc-mauve or something like this reasonable, but perhaps
you have a better suggestion. Once we are at it: Do you have any
hint for my problem with a missing jar file when trying to build Mauve?
As for the mauve build error, some further investigation suggests that
the PropertyFile task lives inside ant-nodeps.jar, which should be
included in the ant-optional debian package. Perhaps ant can't find
/usr/share/ant/lib/ant-nodeps.jar ? If that file exists you might try
ant -lib /usr/share/ant/lib/ant-nodeps.jar
and if that works, then ant may not know where $ANT_HOME is, or
$ANT_HOME may not be set to /usr/share/ant.
