Dear list,

I wanted to let you know that the installation of bioperl from Git (git 
clone https://github.com/bioperl/bioperl-live.git) seems to be missing 
some files, which leads to an error message when using the Ensembl API
For example folder bioperl-live/Bio/Root/ does not include Root.pm, it 
includes only a script HTTPget.pm

Installing from the archive at 
http://bioperl.org/DIST/BioPerl-1.6.1.tar.gz solved the problem since 
all files are included now.
