What version are you running? 1.0

What's the URL of the page this enhancement relates to, if any?

Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
A link to /reviewboard/dashboard/ from the admin page would be good.
There seems to be no way to get back to /reviewboard/dashboard/ without
manually typing the url and using the browsers history.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
XP, FFox

Please provide any additional information below.

Maybe for 1.1, but it may slip.

I want to rethink the admin UI, and this won't happen for 1.1. There's no place in
the current admin UI header area that I really like for this that's obvious.

   I have installed a couple of review board instances and each time, the 
administrators asks me how to return to the main dashboard.

   Have a look to the file joined to see what I have done in the current admin UI 
header area. I agree this is not the best way to do that, but anyway, they now enjoy 
the capability to return to the main dashboard.

Ended up going a slightly different route. Not the most obvious, but I don't want to
add an explicit back link just now. Planning out a redesign of the admin UI, and I
might add an explicit one then.

There's now a Review Board logo in the admin UI which, like the logo on the main
site, links to the dashboard.
