Have added extra functionality for handling deletions from database (use DeleteRecord?.py), ingesting single records (extra options to oai_document_ingester.py "-i") and further improved logging. Can now delete records without having to clear out entire database and start again. These classes will now allow a front end interface for users to synchronise their oai repository with the discovery db without having to reingest everything for a single record! This upgraded ingest code now operational on PROGLUE (not glue..!)

Postgres DB on proglue now backed up daily.

TODO: need to merge code currently as tagged release (TI01-discovery/tags/stable-TI01-ingestAutomation_Proglue_upgradesAndReporting) with updated Atom compatible ingest scripts.
