After reading a paper about Scratchpads, I wandered over to the git repository and the Scratchpads sandbox. First off, I had no idea of the scope of the Scratchpads project and really appreciate access to the modules and sandbox!
While playing in the sandbox, I successfully imported a taxonomy via EOL's webservice. Well, I was successful with a small vocab (~110 terms) whereas a slightly larger one (~1800 terms) failed - possibly due to time-out issues stemming from the fact that it is a sandbox. This is a great feature! Any hints as to the module dependencies for this functionality? Which modules would one need to install to get this functionality on a non-Scratchpads Drupal site?
To keep this from being a complete support request, I've uploaded screen-shots of the GUI interface and the product of a vocabulary imported from EOL.
