Sorrry about that. Steffen was helping me quickly get set up to do Debian
packaging during the BOSC Codefest, and I admit I didn't spend much time on
the text. I'll behave better now.
For HMMer: I'm not sure exactly how the change from PVM to MPI affects end
users, but the package does include some other changes they should be aware
of. Most notably:
- 'hmmpfam' is renamed to 'hmmscan',
- 'hmmcalibrate' is gone, no longer needed
- programs that kept the same name generally take different options now
- several new binaries are added
Should that go in the NEWS file instead?
