Hi Manil,

Is this is a show stopper for you, or can you first get the workflows worked up on local resources
or any Grid? I see the trunk is too much moving now with registry changes. As soon as they
are done and 0.5 release is cut (looks like some time next week), then it will be good to
focus on resurrecting EC2 support. 

P.S. This is outside the scope of Airavata, but with my different hat on, if you need help
getting access to XSEDE send me an email, and I shall walk you through applying for startup
accounts -

to my knowledge, no one has been actively testing or using it in the last couple of releases.
The version inherited into Airavata fully supported it, but since there is no user community
actively using/asking for it, the UI's related to EC2 submissions within XBaya have not been
actively changed. But it should be matter of testing and getting things back online, if noting
else since the sourecforge version is still in working shape, it should be trivial task.
