Autopopulate the FD form based on metadata in earlier version already deposited

Project:RUcore Workflow Management System (WMS)

Description

I am depositing a subsequent version of an article already in the repository.
When I click submit, I get the "My Previously Deposited Work" pop-up asking me to identify the earlier version from amongst my deposits.

I click the appropriate radio button. At this point (according to the Versioning spec), if ‘yes’ is checked, the system presents a list of the author’s previously submitted work (as a popup, or as a page, and this list comes from WMS). S/he selects the title, then the form is autopopulated with the metadata from the most recent previous version, which the depositor has the option to edit.

1. The form is not autopopulating.

2. It might also be helpful to put a little message at the top of the deposit list popup saying the system will fill in the rest of the form based on the previously deposited version, and the user can make corrections as needed.

Otherwise, the user selects previously deposited work and isn't sure if s/he needs to fill out the rest of the form (logically not, since we already have the information).
