Hi Guys,

Thanks for the quick response. I installed the latest blast datatypes from the toolshed and that fixed the issue.

Peter, can you also fix the $outfile.extra_files_path to $outfile.files_path on line 5 in the makedb wrapper xml file.

The patch just removes the MetadataElement call - is that wise?

Hi Peter,
my question instead is, what are they for? With 'name' they have no

Looking at the code, I don't see a recent API change regarding
the name:


Is there perhaps a universe_wsgi.ini setting which might be involved,
since I've not seen this error locally?

$ cd lib/galaxy/datatypes/
$ grep 'MetadataElement(' *.py|grep -v name

returns nothing, so the 'name' parameter is really mandatory.


Good question - I'd have to ask Edward what he thought this did,
but you seem to be right that as the code stands this metadata
element is rather pointless.

(I'm still puzzled why we don't see the error here though).

I'll apply your patch and test it locally...


Nicola - It looks good here, uploaded to the ToolShed as v0.0.15

Raj - Could you apply the update from the ToolShed and
confirm if that fixes the problem for you?

Edward - have you received my direct email off list?
