Hi Bertram and Shawn,

REAP has a usecase about creating "a publication ready archive".  The  
idea is that after running a workflow, an archive can be created that  
contains the workflow and all relevant inputs and outputs. http://reap.ecoinformatics.org/Wiki.jsp?page=UsecasePublicationReadyArchive

I've started on this usecase by extending the org.kepler.provenance  
framework -- I've extended the SQL recording type so that it also  
maintains files used or produced by a workflow and the workflow file  
itself, inside the database (as blobs).

Now a provenance browser is desired, so that a user can peruse and  
export a given workflow run to a pub-ready archive, and delete other  
runs they don't want to keep. I've downloaded Kepler/pPOD and taken a  
look at your provenance browser, and want to ask for your thoughts on  
trying to rework it for this usecase. Do you think this is a good  
idea? Will it be difficult to decouple from ppod specifics? Any  
pointers on where I should start? I notice code that looks relevant in  
kepler svn here: modules/provenance-apps/trunk/src/main/java/org/daks/
