Enable Dockstore/Terra to run releases or tags from Github

Post author

Dockstore allows me to run WDLs from any branch on Github which is a very helpful feature, but sometimes the WDL will change out from under me if a change is merged on Github. This makes working collaboratively difficult and it makes it impossible to reproduce results if the branch script has been changed. It would be great if Terra could use released versions or tags from Github instead of just branch names.

    Hi Megan,

    Thanks for writing in about this. I can see how using branch names instead of released versions or tags might make using WDLs more difficult. I've sent this request to our development team for consideration, and I'll be happy to follow up with you if this feature gets built. 

    Kind regards,
