Thanks Greg, could you delete the repository I created please?

I guess that step isn't necessary as most people won't create repositories until they are ready to go. It would stop curious users like me creating empty repositories by just clicking buttons..

Is there more documentation on what is required to publish a new tool in the tool shed?

Hello Shaun,

Hi Galaxy team,

I created a new repository on the tool shed called "test", I wanted to see what steps were required to publish a tool before I go ahead and release the production version. I then tried to change the name of the repository and got a server error.

This problem was due to a bug which I've fixed, so the tool shed is functional with your renamed repository. Thanks for finding the bug...



When I search for test, try to navigate to 2nd page of the repository list or view my own repositories the server error occurs.

Apologies if I broke it...

You didn't , sorry for the bug!


On a side note, I did not see an option to delete a created repository.


Yes, currently only a tool shed admin ( me ) can delete a repository. I've considered allowing owners to delete repositories, but that may open up problems with users that want to be able to download tools from that repository because they have downloaded them in the past. Obviously this issue affects the "reproducibility factor". We'll have to figure out how to handle this optimally...


Also, my test repository went live straight away. Would it make sense to be able to create a repository and load files then have a publish button for when you choose to release.

I'm not sure I understand the issue here. Why do you feel that it is important to have this extra step? Is it just that repositories should not be displayed until they contain files? if so, I can probably make that change, and it won't require clicking a "Publish" button.



Thanks
Shaun
