I'm trying to use drosophila2GENENAME with the BioC 1.6 release and  
running into some trouble. It seems that all of the gene names are  
NA. Did something happen to these or am I doing something wrong here?

In an attempt to figure out what's going on, I've stumbled across a  
couple other things:

1. When doing install.packages2("drosophila2"), everything seems to

2. The "Return to index" link on the http://bioconductor.org/data/ 
metaData/html/ page is busted.

I imagine that the web pages are still in a state of flux; if you  
want me to hold off on bug reports on the bioc web pages, I'm happy  
to do so.



btw, I'm successfully (for the most part) using BioC 1.6 on OS X  
10.4.1 with R-2.1.0 built w/ gfortran. Lots of moving rapidly targets...
