Allow users to link their ORCID to their data

- When generating semantic annotations, one of the annotations can be to attribute the package (and its contents?) to the person listed in the <creator> element.
- I use the individualName in the <creator> element to query ORCID for potential matches. If we find one, I use the ORCID for the prov:wasAttributedTo property of the package.
- When this annotation is parsed in metacat-index, any prov:wasAttributedTo values go into a dynamic field called "creator_sm" that can be used to drive the UI and notions of "the user's content".
Here's a sample ORCID endpoint and response:

This looks good and pretty straightforward. I think we will need to decide on a process for when/if to attribute an ORCID to a creator. There are two options that I can think of:
1. Automatically attribute an ORCID to a creator based on a certain level of relevancy returned from a name search
2. Store an ORCID in the index based on a certain level of relevancy but wait for a confirmation from a rights holder before certainly attributing the ID to that creator
It may just be a matter of how we treat the creator/ID in the interface (confirmed or unconfirmed), however if we are storing confirmations we will need to indicate that in the index.
We also will want to think of how we will handle corrections - e.g. creating a new metadata version to remove or add a new ORCID.

- Status changed from New to Resolved
Users can now log in via their ORCID account and link it to their CILogon or LDAP account, if they have one. They will have a user profile that shows their data contributions from both their ORCiD and CILogon/LDAP accounts.
There are some outstanding issues with ORCiDs that need to be addressed (will create new tickets):
- users cannot request an identity mapping to an ORCiD account (but they can initiate an ID map request from their ORCiD)
- ORCiD users cannot be added to groups
- ORCiD users cannot create groups
These are all not possible right now because the ORCiD identifier is not valid syntax for an LDAP DN, so errors are thrown.
