No, no! There is a misunderstanding. Please ship EMBOSS-latest.
BioLib uses the actual checkout of the CVS tree of EMBOSS, so I am
even further ahead.
As I understood the problem is that Embassy does not properly work
against 6.3.1 - and should therefore either be dropped, or shipped
with a working 6.2. Right?
I meant to say that supporting Embassy, if that is not coming from
the EMBOSS team itself, would be heroic. That is what I am asking on
the EMBOSS-list - whether they intend to keep Embassy up to date, or
not. BioLib does not use Embassy tools.
Sorry for the misunderstanding.
