Currently, the only way to schedule a job is via a previously-prepared XML file. RHTS allowed us to easily submit one-off jobs without that overhead. I'm assuming it's planned to re-add that feature, but I need a bug to add the the sign-off page.
This is not something that is going to happen for live. You can input an xml from scratch on the UI if need be.
"This is not something that is going to happen for live." I'm not sure i understand this response. Does it mean 'this will never happen' or 'this feature will not block beaker and legacy rhts tear down'

That is a very interesting idea.
I'm picturing kind of like a guided XML editor (in js on the client side) with collapsible elements. The users starts with an empty <job/> element and can fill in new recipes by starting with the minimum mandatory set of elements for a recipe. The ui would make it easy to add optional child elements, and to fill in element content and attribute values. It could display documentation for each element/attribute in a little box beside where the user is editing. And all of it would be generated from the XSD (or the RELAX NG schema).
Let me think some more about how impossible that will be :-)
This requires UI changes, further work is scheduled for 0.6.
We won't block RHTS decomission for this bug anyway, so I'm moving it to HotBeakerBugs for further tracking.
