[ckan-discuss] Function that controls which fields to be posted

Working with Toby on IRC I found out that the cause of this problem
was my IDatasetForm plugin not implementing
form_to_db_schema_api_create().  Adding that method solved the problem
for me.

See: https://github.com/okfn/ckan/blob/master/ckan/lib/plugins.py#L245

In my case it does the same thing my form_to_db_schema method does.

I've opened a new issue: https://github.com/okfn/ckan/issues/608

Unlike the example extension, I want to add a field at the 1/3 phase where user are asked to fill in some basic info. The related html should be package_basic_fields.html. I initially follow the tutorial on customizing the field and successfully stored the field added in new_package_metadata.html, but can't get the fields in the 1/3 phase stored. When I look into the _parsed_post_vars from the WSGI variables, my customized fields is not being posted.
