Bika Roadmap 2014 II. Wish list
We were approached last week by a development team asking for technical assistance with functions they have been coding on for a number of weeks - an 80% match to what we have started on for bioinformatics now. We hope to see their code released but it looks very much like we'd be following a different, and given the difference in Bika experience, more sustainable route.
