Hello John,

The Galaxy tool shed currently is not enabled to automatically edit the datatypes_conf.xml file, although I could add this feature if the need exists.  Can you elaborate on what you are looking to do regarding this?

Can we introduce new file types via tools in the tool shed? It seems Galaxy can load them if they are in the datatypes configuration file. Does tool installation automate the editing of that file?
