Dan, nothing like this is currently possible in galaxy-central. Builds are handled very
statically right now, just read at startup into a variable in Galaxy util, which is then
used in lots of places. To implement this would require replacing all those accesses with
a "get_builds" that would filter by user. Additional complication comes from all
the dynamic selects that work on builds (e.g. mapping tools) that would need to be
So, this would be pretty non-trivial. The additional abstraction would definitely be a
good thing if someone were to implement it, but it isn't on our list at the moment.

We have an internal installation of Galaxy running very nicely with a
fair number of internally generated builds and plenty of data
libraries, recently a user asked if it was possible to add a build and

specific documentation on the subject.
Thanks for any help
