This is not documentation.  These are hints and examples to get you started
until the documentation is written.

Set these options in universe_wsgi.ini and start the server:

admin_users = you@example.org
library_import_dir = /path/to/some/directory

In the directory you specified for 'library_import_dir', create some
subdirectories, and put (or symlink) files to import into Galaxy into those
subdirectories.

In Galaxy, create an account that matches the address you put in 'admin_users',
then browse to that user's preferences and generate a new API Key.  Copy the
key to your clipboard and then use these scripts:
