Yes Martin is right,

All the code that generates stock annotation packages, along with 
instructions on how to do this sort of thing has been migrated from 
AnnotationDbi to AnnotationForge.  AnnotationDbi is now lighter so that 
it imposes less weight on users who have no interest in composing their 
own packages.
