Hi Weigang et al,
Congrats on the manuscript! Apologies for the late reply, this one snuck by me.
The FAQ (http://bioperl.org/FAQ.html) can answer some of these questions. In general I would refer to the citation (http://genome.cshlp.org/content/12/10/1611); if there is anyone in particular you wish to acknowledge they could be mentioned in that section.
I agree, having simpler front-end scripts/wrappers is a definite benefit long-term, primarily b/c you are creating a more user-friendly front-end. I’m actually wondering where some of the more popular scripts in the core ‘scripts’ directory could be ported to this, it seems like a better long-term solution since these appear to be tested (one thing the scripts actually lack).
Dear BopPerl developers & users,
We are planning to formally release and write a manuscript on BbWrapper (https://github.com/bioperl/p5-bpwrapper), currently including four command-line utilities (bioseq, bioaln, biotree, biopop) for manipulation of sequences, alignments, and phylogenetic trees.
We would like to ask for your input on the following two issues:
We believe the “Wrapper”-approach is more robust than many stand-alone sequence utilities out there because of this community of developers and users. Also, we believe these wrapper scripts could further popularize BioPerl among biologists by relieving them from writing object-oriented module callers.

Thanks for the encouragement & suggestions. We will definitely cite the reference.
Rocky developed formal testing scripts on multiple OS & versions of the same OS. We will take a look at the scripts and see what could popular one be wrapped.
