Just to confirm, I've written out the exact steps I've taken to add a new W3C widget to Rave:

1. Start Rave (mvn cargo run…)

2. Drop <mycustomwidget>.wgt into tomcat6x/webapps/wookie/deploy

3. In Rave, log in as an admin user (e.g. canonical from the default install)

4. Click "Widget Store" on the menu bar.

The Widget Store page opens.

5. Click "Add new widget" on the menu bae.

The Add new widget page opens.

6. Click the "W3C" tab.

7. Click "Browse".

The Browse window opens.

8. Scroll down until you find your widget, and click "Get Metadata"

The "Add Widget" form appears, with the information from your widget filled in.

9. Click "Add Widget"

The message "This widget is waiting for approval by the site administrator" is shown.

10. Click "Admin inteface" on the menu bar.

The Rave admin interface page opens.

11. Click "Widgets" in the left-hand menu.

12. Navigate through the results until you find your widget. The results are in alphabetical
order. Click the title of your widget.

The EDIT WIDGET DATA form opens.

13. Change the value of Status from PREVIEW to PUBLISHED

14. Click UPDATE WIDGET at the bottom of the form (not the orange "Update Widget Metadata"

The widget is now published, and should be visible in the widget store for users.
