Description

I've installed flex_extract in version 7.0.4, following the instructions given in the SIP.pdf file, section 3.2.2, "Installation using a gateway server".

This works fine, I can submit jobs by running submit.py on my local machine, so far so good.

However, I noted that in order to run submit.py on my local machine, I need to have *grib_api* installed locally, which doesn't seem to make sense, as all the computations are being carried out on ECMWF servers.

I would suggest to modify submit.py so that the from GribTools import GribTools comes inside the if args.queue==None block.

Actually, now that I look at the code, it seems to me that GribTools is not used at all in submit.py, so one should be able to just delete that line.
