So, I'm trying to figure out how I installed my `samtools` and `bcftools` versions so I can replicate it across different computers using conda. I know I installed it from the "download zipfile" on the website which gives you the most recent master clone. With all of the differences between different versions of samtools outputs and input arguments I can't get it to work with any of the 0.2.0-rc*.

I know my samtools version is 0.1.18 (r982:295) and bcftools is 0.1.17-dev (r973-277). But because of the way the Github repo is setup I can't figure out which git-sha these correspond to.

Does anyone know which versions these might be? Or any way to figure it out?

I may be wrong, but isn't it a version that was hosted on SF like: ?

That solves the samtools problem. But it doesn't seem to work for the bcftools. There's a sourceforge page for vcftools ( and that only goes to release 972

bcftools 0.1.17-dev (r973-277) came with samtools 0.1.18, it wasn't part of vcftools.

[dpryan@DustPuppy bcftools]$ pwd
[dpryan@DustPuppy bcftools]$ ./bcftools

Program: bcftools (Tools for data in the VCF/BCF formats)
Version: 0.1.17-dev (r973:277)
