AF - Auto Populate Properties

This is an Umbraco extension that allow developers to configure which document type and/or media type properties must be auto-populate on saving actions.

For each document and/or media types, the developers must specify wich properties must be auto populate and how.

- Property "label": section tab name
- Property "alias": section alias
- Property "active": if true, set the tab active
- Property "actions": contains the actions list to which the auto-populate functionality will be applied
- Property "action": according to Umbraco directives, the Created Action ("created") has been removed therefore the Auto Populate Properties function now only occurs during the Saving Action ("saving")
