Feature: possibility to update/choose metadata directly on the upload form
Created by: mbehrle
Currently the actual metadata for a new document are displayed on the side of the upload form. It would be nice to be able to change those metadata directly instead of having to go to the upload workflow from the beginning.
I imagine some kind of split form, where on one side it is possible to choose the metadata, on the other side the upload for as currently is.

This is a commonly requested feature. The current upload workflow was based of Django's wizard and its requirement that file uploads needed to happen at the last step. Checking the documentation is seems they have improved this: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/formtools/form-wizard/#handling-files or we can go with the split form suggestion (a new split form template would also be needed, one that call generic_subtemplates.html twice).
