Hi all,

Having just accidental uploaded the wrong tar-ball to
the ToolShed, I think it would be helpful to add some
sanity testing to the ToolShed.

I accidentally uploaded a tar-ball for the ncbi_blast_plus
repository to the blast_datatypes repository instead.
The two repositories a have no tools or file types in
common. Something like the following check would
catch this kind of (easily made) human error:

Compare the incoming tool identifiers and file format
extensions to those already defined, and raise an error
if there is *no* overlap.

This test would allow you to add/remove individual
components.

Another idea would be an "Are you sure?" prompt
after processing the upload showing the diff against
the current version.

Regards,

Peter
