We have a requirement to be able to set tags and workflow configuration parameters based on the Dublincore metadata values stored in mediapackage's catalogs
For example in a workflow set to edit/review we wish to publish the mediapackage before edit if the episode has audience set to "required" which will make it immediately available to users who are registered as requiring recorded lectures. Similarly we want to tag the this early publication element as only been available to the "required" audience.
We want to set the workflow configuration dynamically based on the mediapackage's metadata so it we need to rerun the workflow we get the desired results with having to manually examine the metadata and manually configure the workflow.
I've removed the fix version 1.7.x and set this issued to "Fixed and reviewed" since the PR is in r/2.4.x.
