      Description

      Currently, the selection of the XmlWorkflow to use, the submission process and the DescribeStep's form definition is based on the handle of the collection which owns the item.
      There are many cases in which it would be very useful to be able to define that configuration based on a comunity's handle, and let the descendant collections to inherit that configuration. That way you wouldn't have to replicate the configuration for every involved collection.

      We are about to change the selection method in order to look for the collection's handle first, and then for its parents communities (their handles), in ascending order.

      We would like to hear your thoughts on this and if you think it would be a useful patch for dspace.
