Adding new tool to a public server

Hi,

Is there a way to add my own tool to a public galaxy server (in this case, usegalaxy.org)? When I searched for tutorials on how to add a tool to a galaxy server, I arrive at this page:
https://galaxyproject.org/admin/tools/add-tool-from-toolshed-tutorial/

My understanding from this page is that, if I have my own instance of a galaxy server in my machine (or cluster), in which case I will be the admin, then I can install my tool using one of the listed methods. But I don’t suppose anyone can get admin privileges to do those tasks (install own tool) on a public server like usegalaxy.org.

Could you point me to the documentation on how I can install and use my own code (tool) on usegalaxy.org?

Thanks,
Wazim M.

usegalaxy.org is a public server, so we only install high quality, approved tools. The usual procedure involves writing a new tool and creating a pull request (PR) against the IUC repository. Once the PR is accepted we (usegalaxy.org administrators) can install the tool on the public site. See this for more info.
