Hello Florent,

Sorry for the confusion on this - we are preparing a new Galaxy distribution, 
and the tool shed wiki has been written in preparation for it.  The new 
distribution will be available fairly soon, and the Galaxy News Brief will 
include information about these new tool shed features.  In any case, you have 
already discovered that you can use in if you update your Galaxy instance to 
the latest Galaxy development repository ( Galaxy central ).

The problem you see is most likely caused by your not having configured an 
additional tool_config_file setting in your universe_wsgi.ini.  Look for 
something like following in your latest version of the universe_wsgi.ini.sample 
that you got when you updated from Galaxy central.

# Locally installed tools and tools installed from tool sheds
tool_config_file = tool_conf.xml,shed_tool_conf.xml

If you add a new additional file name like shed_tool_conf.xml, you should not 
have a problem installing from a tool shed.  I'll have a fix for the bug you've 
discovered shortly, but making this change will fix the behavior until then.

Let me know if you bump into any additional problems.

Thanks for finding this!
