           Summary: EML 2 Dataset actor needs to access local data files
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0beta2
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: data access
        AssignedTo: tao at nceas.ucsb.edu
        ReportedBy: tyburczy at nceas.ucsb.edu

The EML 2 Dataset actor currently allows the user to specify a local EML file. 
Once that file is specified, Kepler immediately parses the metadata and tries
to improt the data files using the metadata in the distribution tag.  Sinec the
distribution tag always contains ecogrid:// addresses (unless the user manually
edits them), Kepler always tries to download data files from the KNB at this
point.  This effectively prevents users from using local copies of EML data
sets, as usually the data as well as the metadata will be offline.
