[EP-tech] All exported subjects marked as depositable

Hi all,

The "depositable" field in the "subject" table has apparently changed from boolean to varchar, so when exporting subjects at perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Export/Subject.pm the comparison:

                push @parts, $dataobj->get_value( "depositable" ) ? "1" : "0";

always returns  "1", even if the value for the field is "FALSE".

A fix for this would be:

                push @parts, uc($dataobj->get_value( "depositable" )) eq 'TRUE' ? "1" : "0";
