To get the source code, you can either:
1. Install Subversion (http://subversion.tigris.org/), get a working
copy of the devel sources for AnnBuilder:
svn co --username=readonly --password=readonly
2. Download the source package (.tar.gz) from here:
Learning svn may seem intimidating, but you can get started in small
steps. Installing and doing a checkout to download a copy of the
source code is a good way to start.

Bos Taurus is a fairly popular organism. I will try to make AnnBuilder
Bos Taurus. It might take a couple of days. But I have to commit the
modification to bioc 2.1 because BioC 2.0 has just been released.
I have updated AnnBuilder to support cattle. Please use "Bos taurus"
as organism name when you invoke ABPkgBuilder. Here is an example
maintainer="myname <user at="" email.com="">"
"bovine.GenBankID" and "bovine.EntrezGeneID" are the mapping I
extracted from Affymetrix's annotation file for gene chip Bovine. I
also want to list the QC data here just to give a sense of annotation

In regarding to your question about Resourcerer, I am sure Jianhua,
the author of the Resourcerer package, will be the most helpful
resource. Speaking with my limited knowledge of Resourcerer, I think
no modification is required for function "getResourcerer" and you want
to specify organism name as "cattle". The function "resourcerer2BioC"
may not support cattle out of the box. One possible solution is to add
a mapping between "cattle" and "Bos taurus" inside the function code.
But there must be other better solutions as well.
