New GridPP DPM Tools release: now part of DPM.

I'm happy to announce the release of the next version of the GridPP DPM toolkit, which now includes some tools for complete integrity checking of a disk filesystem against the DPNS database.
This should also be able to checksum the files as well, although this takes a lot longer.

The bigger change is that the tools are now provided in the DPM repository, as the dpm-contrib-admintools package. Due to packaging constraints, this RPM installs the tools to /usr/bin, so male sure it is earlier in your path than the old /opt/lcg/bin path...

Richards would like to encourage other groups with useful DPM tools to contribute them to the repo.
