I'm a newbie to galaxy and enjoying it a lot these days. Thanks for the
I have a question regarding contribution of software to galaxy. We developed
a ChIP-seq peak calling algorithm and software (R package) and hope to
contribute it to galaxy. I have read the wiki and prior mailing list about
the contribution system but it is still somewhat confusing to me.
1. It seems that I can contribute our software to "tool shed" if I prepare
appropriate code & definition files. Then, users can download and use it
with their locally installed galaxy. However, these files committed to tool
shed will not appear in galaxy main or test servers. Am I correct?
2. What is clear relationship between main/test servers & tool shed? Can we
contribute our software to main or test servers as well? Or only galaxy core
developers can add new tools to galaxy main or test servers? If so, which
software is considered to be added to servers? Are they chosen from tools
contributed to tool shed?
3. If our software is a R package, then users need to download and install
it first in their R system before they use our software within their galaxy
system even in the case they have appropriate definition files. Am I right?
Or is there any better solution for this?
