Hi Greg.

I had the tool shed and Galaxy opened in two tabs so this may have been the issue. I am using a mysql database.

I will check tis again when I next update Galaxy and let you know if there is a problem.

Thanks for your help

Hi Shaun,

Thanks very much for the details - they have helped me discover a weakness which I've fixed. if the browser page is opened to the "Manage repository" page in the tool shed when the repository is cloned for the first time, the repository name could be changed after the clone. This has been fixed in change set 7441:513a95abb738.

However, your step 4 (return to toolshed, find repository) implies that this is not what you were doing. Can you update to the tip from Galaxy central and see if my latest fix still allows you to change the repository name after it has been cloned in your environment? If so, I'll need to figure out what you are doing differently that is still allowing for this.

Also, what database are you using? I found some issues with sqlite that I've fixed that would not eve have allowed for the repository to be cloned in the first place.

Thanks again!

I cannot reproduce this behavior, so can you let me know the steps you use to do so? I need the page on which you are able to change the name of the tool shed repository in the tool shed after it has been cloned.

1. Create new repository in local toolshed and fill in name, synopsis, description and category
2. Upload a .pl script file then upload a .xml wrapper file
3. Go to my local Galaxy and install repository via admin panel
4. Return to toolshed, find repository and name etc are still editable

Screen shot attached. I noticed that "times downloaded" is still 0 after installing the repository. I have cloned the repository using hg on command line and this is still not updated. I'm guessing this is the problem.
