It's actually in related to a new galaxy shed tool we developed called meme-chip, we uploaded it to the main Tool Shed site.

We provided tool_data_table_conf.xml.sample and xxx.loc.sample  along with the tool. After the installation, the loc file has been populated automatically, but the entry inside tool_data_table_conf.xml.sample didn't get populated.

Although it can be fixed easily by adding entries to the runtime tool_data_table_conf.xml manually, it's good to know if it's the right way or we are missing something in the shed tool repos.

Hi guys,

After installing the BWA from the Tools Shed, I find there is a new tool_data_table_conf.xml got created under tool-data directory. The file contains the entries of BWA's loc files.

I believe the installed BWA still relies on the tool_data_table_conf.xml under galaxy root dir. Anyone can clarify what the one under tool-data dir is for?
