Are you eventually going to use your repository? If you are planning to never upload a tool, I'll delete it. Otherwise, I'll leave it active so you can eventually use it. > > I guess that step isn't necessary as most people won't create repositories > until they are ready to go.

Nothing yet, but as time permits, there will be. It's basically just common sense. If you have developed a tool that you feel is useful, upload it. Additional things like including working functional tests with small input / output datasets makes it even more useful. A very important feature that I recently added is baseline functionality for repository metadata. An attempt is made to generate repository metadata with each new change set. If the attempt is not successful, metadata is not generated for that change set. This metadata will eventually be an important ingredient in allowing the tool to be automatically installed from the tool shed into a Galaxy instance with just a few mouse clicks. > > Shaun > > > Quoting Greg Von Kuster <g...@bx.psu.edu> on Tue, 12 Jul 2011 10:24:28 -0400: > >> Hello Shaun, >> >> On Jul 12, 2011, at 6:07 AM, SHAUN WEBB wrote: >> >>> >>> 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.
