I would like to start a topic where Linux power users could brainstorm the Linux specific design ideas for Galaxy.
Right now I do not have much time, so I will write some more in coming days, after doing proper research.
As a starter, I suggest to harness the flexibility of Linux by doing something like this during installation of Galaxy:
- Create a Galaxy specific group.
- Install the common Galaxy files in /opt/galaxy .
- Make those files and directories owned and editable by the Galaxy group.
- Have chosen users be added to the Galaxy group.
Thanks to that one can reap benefits of shared data and security. Actually, I am going to think some more on a scenario of multiple GOG users on one system, but as I said I am out of time today.
See you later!
