Luau, a DSpace admin module for Libarians

Presenting A DSpace Admin Module: 
Librarians Understandably want to stay Away from Unix
or LUAU for short.

It allows people to do some of the routine administrative server settings tasks in DSpace without touching unix. Here's the goods: No more ensuring you have the latest copy of input-forms.xml, ftp'ing it to the server, and restarting tomcat.

You can download the running config of dspace.cfg and input-forms.xml.
Upload that file, with their modifications, and restart the server.

Other features include viewing the last however many lines from a log file. Which is useful in debugging a buggered config file.

UPDATE: Adding another image so its clearer what you can be done with an admin module.
