Hi Brian,

I was aware of issues with the  "<biblio>" plugin, but not all of this.
Most likely this is from the server move at the end of 2012,
http://news.open-bio.org/news/2012/11/server-transition-to-aws/

Assuming someone senior from BioPerl (or Chris Dag?) will vouch
for you, we'd ask you to join the root-l mailing list where OBF server
admin stuff happens. We'll need a preferred username (e.g. briano
or bosborne) and your SSH public key (the new server does not
accept simple username/password logins).

Regards,

Peter
