Add missing ptolemy actors to library
We should look through ptolemy's source and add Kepler library representations for any actors we don't already display and that will work in Kepler. Today the need for some of the Matrix actors came up, and they're two years old, so I suspect there are a number of ptolemy actors we should add.
kepler.sh -createActorXML can be used.
We could probably issue a patch to the actors module.

I added a new ant target, "find-missing-actors", to list the files of actors, directors, and parameters not in the actor tree, and attached the output to this bug. Christopher, if you tell me what can be added to Kepler, I'll create the metadata files so they appear in the actor tree. Many of the Ptolemy files belong to domains not currently present in Kepler, e.g., SR, Rendezvous, Taskpt, etc. If these are not available in Kepler, then it would be good to update build-area/settings/ptolemy-excludes.

Thanks, Christopher! I added most of the actors and attributes on the list. I also updated ptolemy-excludes.
I couldn't create kar entries for some of the actors because clone() threw an NPE:
