Title (Goal)Audit trail for changes to live item
Primary ActorAdministrator
Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)Currently, DSpace administrators can edit a live item's files and metadata without any audit trail (other than the DSpace log file, but even that only logs that an item was changed and by whom, not what the changes were). There is versioning functionality, but that functionality is optional to use and may be a little heavy-handed if someone is just making a small change. It would be great to retain an audit trail of all changes to a live item (what was changed, by whom and when, perhaps even with the option of a "change log" style comment).
