The real link should better be to [http://wiki.bioinformatics.org/Mauve here]. I left a bit puzzled now, maybe a better package name would be bio-mauve? or genome-mauve?)

Well, I'm aware of this name conflict and just contacted the authors of
"the other" mauve.  Here is a copy of a mail I've got:

  The Classpath mailing list address is classpath@gnu.org
  The Java test kit Mauve can be reached at mauve-discuss@sources.redhat.com

  I'm not sure what the verdict is with Mauve as the list shows very
  little recent traffic, though the web site is still up.

I did not followed this path further because at first we need some
preconditions I'm working on (libmuscle, libmems).  Once this is solved
I might spend some time on the naming issue.

Kind regards
