Alright that makes sense, thanks for the explanation. Then let's asume that
the 77 list is correct.

That sounds like a good idea. I'll use a template then.

Fine with that, let's try it out in the MPI server and if all is fine go
ahead with it.

I agree with that. I'd go for using the discussion page alone. However that
requires some changes, i.e. copying the content of the user comments pages
to the discussion page and moving some other things around. Anyway I suppose
it shouldn't be too difficult. If we agree in doing this I can try to run
some scripts to do the conversion.

Or you can directly use it from here:


By the way, the server is (finally!) up to date with the latest PDB release.
Have a look in talyn (but the listing of annotated structures is broken at
the moment).
