We are managing Galaxy/Cloudman clusters on AWS for a few research groups on campus. As is so often the case, we need to separate usage for billing purposes. This this is fairly simple to do with Amazon's CSV billing report with the "clusterName" tag included. However, it doesn't appear that I can configure Cloudman to set that tag on every resource it creates. This is forcing us to keep the scaling of the clusters under our control so that we can set the tags manually.

What I was hoping, is that this feature could be added. It seems like a fairly simple patch; once the ID (instance, volume, or snapshot) is available, it's one more API call to create/set the clusterName tag.

Any chance of getting this included?
