New uberSVN Admin tab wireframes

Thanks for posting this, Rich. My first thoughts are that by compacting everything currently in the Admin sub-tabs (apart from features which have been moved out) onto a single tab we may be causing this page to have information overload.. 1) [B]Updates[/B] is tiny compared to the current Updates tab, so how would an admin get a full breakdown of what they currently have installed, versus what they could potentially update to? I see there's a History link but I assume that's just going to show previously installed updates? 2) [B]Status[/B] looks good, nice and compact but what will the logs link direct me to? 3) [B]Environment, Authentication, Communication, Plugins[/B] could potentially cause the page to become over-elongated, forcing the user to scroll down, expand a section, scroll down again to show the details, then scroll up to the top of the page in order to restart Tomcat. How about we instead present a dropdown of these sections at the top of the page and whichever one is selected opens a frame below containing the details. That way you only ever have one 'expanded' section to work on and you don't need to scroll around the page to complete the changes. Wayne
