hi Alexander,

you are free to do all this. For me, it is just too much of a hassle.
Also, the program has an installer.

>> The reasons:
>> It has an installer
>> (http://www.jalview.org/Web_Installers/install.htm) and extracting the
>> contents from the installer required an old version of p7zip. This
>> caused p7zip to be stuck with that old version at SBo for quite some
>> time. Finally, I decided to host it myself at sourceforge as a tar.gz
>> -- this means that I have to keep an old version of p7zip and
>> repackage and upload the 'source' to SF every time there's an update
>> from upstream. Too much of a hassle...
