A frequent request we've had is to make the locally cached reference data used
by the public Galaxy server (Main) available for download to local
installations. To facilitate this, we've created an rsync server at
datacache.g2.bx.psu.edu that serves the exact reference builds and associated
indexes that we use on Galaxy Main.
Fetching and installing such data is currently a manual process, so Dave
Bouvier has been working on an administrative UI in Galaxy for automatically
fetching references and building indexes. Keep your eyes on the development
news briefs for an announcement once this feature is ready.
