Bug Bulletin: we have identified a bug that affects indexing when producing gzipped VCFs. This will be fixed in the upcoming 3.2 release; in the meantime you need to reindex gzipped VCFs using Tabix.

How to access the picard-public repository (containing sam-jdk, picard, tribble, and variant)

The picard-public repository on sourceforge, in addition to housing the sam-jdk and picard-public, is now home to tribble and the org.broadinstitute.variant package (which includes VariantContext and associated classes as well as the VCF/BCF codecs).

If you just need to check out the sources and don't need to make any commits into the picard repository, the command is:

svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/picard/code/trunk picard-public

Then you can attach the picard-public/src/java directory in IntelliJ as a source directory (File -> Project Structure -> Libraries -> Click the plus sign -> "Attach Files or Directories" in the latest IntelliJ).

To build picard, sam-jdk, tribble, and org.broadinstitute.variant all at once, type ant from within the picard-public directory. To run tests, type ant test

If you do need to make commits into the picard repository, first you'll need to create a sourceforge account, then contact the Picard team and request access for that account. Once you've been given access, you'll need to check out their repository using a command of this form:

svn checkout --username=YOUR_USERNAME svn+ssh://YOUR_USERNAME@svn.code.sf.net/p/picard/code/trunk picard-public

    I was actually able to find the VCF files in this path GenomeAnalysisTK-2.6-5\GenomeAnalysisTK-2.6-5-gba531bd\GenomeAnalysisTK\org\broadinstitute\variant\vcf and I changed the path location in the code, but it still can't seem to find or recognize it. Do you happen to know why this is and how to fix it?
