One part of the mock up I was a bit uncomfortable with was the "view
details" section of selecting a recipe.  It seems as if this allowed
editing the recipe -- if this is the case, I think it's a bit wrong.
The dialog that lets you edit a recipe should have a button labelled
"Save" at the bottom of it, not build, to emphasise that one is editing
a shared resource, not something specific to this build.  So perhaps the
workflow should be select recipe, edit recipe, this pops up another
dialog, save, goes back to selection screen with edited recipe selected,
then click build.  I think James already said something like this.
