        Let's really clarify this within the context of Rob's draft.  It
presently gives instructions on how to deposit software via FTP to
nic.funet.fi (plus an email message about it to molbio at nic.funet.fi), or via
email to software-sources at genbank.bio.net if the submitter doesn't have FTP.
Will Rob then get the stuff to the other archives, or should we do that
ourselves?  If the latter, how would submitters who don't have FTP get the
stuff to ftp.bio.indiana.edu?
