Is there anything written down about the expected shell(s)
available for a standard Galaxy instance?

In the meantime I will try that on the Test Tool Shed, based
on the tool_dependencies.xml example you shared before:


Note there seems to me to be a lot of duplication - I would like
a way to unambiguously combine multiple CPU architectures
into a single action.

For example, combine these:

<actions os="darwin" architecture="x86_64">
<actions os="darwin" architecture="i386">


<actions os="darwin" architecture="x86_64,i386">

or just:

<actions os="darwin">

and similarly, combine these:

<actions os="linux" architecture="i386">
<actions os="linux" architecture="i686">

into something like:

<actions os="linux" architecture="i386,i686">

Assuming that works on the Test Tool Shed, and the code for
this is already in the stable releases, I will update the main
Tool Shed definition as well.
