      Description

      The results from the Curation Admin UI are a bit confusing at times (and even I'm having a bit of trouble understanding/reading them, despite knowing the role of the Curation System).

      Here's an example of retrieving results from Curation Admin UI:

      The results are returned as one long, unbroken string – e.g.:

      "The task, profileformats was completed with the status: 0. Results: 11 (U) Unknown data format 1 (K) Broadcase Wave Format 1 (K) Microsoft Powerpoint 2 (K) Graphics Interchange Format 1 (K) Microsoft Excel XML 1 (K) Microsoft Excel"

      We may want to improve the readibility/understandability of these results by doing the following:
      1. Replace "status: 0" with a understandable string like "Success"
      2. Explain that "(K)" = Known Format and "(U)" = Unknown. Or leave it out altogether, as the unknown data formats are already totaled together.
      3. Return results in a bulleted list (or each entry on a separate line)

      We also may potentially want a paragraph/description for each of the available Curation Tasks. It's not always self-explanatory what a particular task may be doing (and therefore, what the results actually mean).

      I've sent these along to Richard Rodgers separately – but, I wanted to track these issues here. Also feel free to add more comments on the Curation Admin UI to this same issue.
