Hello I'm just getting started with the Galaxy 101 tutorial and I wanted to report what might be a few problems. I'm not sure if this is the place to make a report (or get help) since the tutorial is at https://github.com/nekrut/galaxy/wiki/Galaxy101-1. I am running with my own local copy of Galaxy that I recently downloaded.
Disclaimer: I'm a software developer / engineer with very little experience in biology.
The instructions for the 101 tutorial seem to be a bit outdated. They reference data sets that aren't available in the location mentioned (although a little poking around revealed them in a nearby archive). They also refer to menu items that have been moved/renamed in the interface.
It might also be good to provide an estimate of the processing time and resulting database size for the join operation. With the data I used (which was a bit of a guess ... see note 1 above), the join operation appeared to hang. I restarted it a few times, with the same result. Eventually I decided to let it run over night, and it did finish, but it generated a large data set that alarmed my system administrator. If this is expected, it might be good to mention these in the tutorial. If this isn't expected, then I may be doing something wrong and welcome any help available.
If anyone can update the tutorial (or direct me to a more updated version) that would be very welcome!!
