    Move rpm/tar download from boss to ops, to avoid wasted network traffic. · f37cd9dc

    To turn this option on, define SPEWFROMOPS=1 in your defs file. This
    will result in a redirect message from boss which will send the wget
    client over to ops. 
    A perl setuid root cgi script is run from the webserver on ops when a
    /spewrpmtar request is made. This script sends the key,nodeid,file
    over to boss via XMLRPC (as elabman). The return is simple yes or no,
    the caller is allowed (not allowed) to have that file. Since the
    ops script runs as root, it can spew the file back to the caller.
    Note that the elabinelab checks for the elabinelab source code are
    gone; we are now open source. Also, we spew that file from /share now,
    to be consistent.
