Dear Galaxy Team,
There seems to be a persistent problem with importing fastq files from EBI SRA - I've been trying to upload data since about Christmas, and keep getting the same error message as reported by others. Although the alternative "Extract reads in FASTQ/A format from NCBI SRA" works, the fastq splitter is taking forever (memory problems?). I would appreciate if you could look into the problem - or should we try to contact the EBI staff? There is no announcement at their website about maintenance or anything...
