Reset metadata on new document from template

Stephen Wilson requested to merge zeragamba/krita:fix-template-meta into master

This 1.5 line change fixes a bug that's been bothering me since the recorder feature was added :P

When creating a new document from a template, the created date, editing time, and revision numbers were not reset. This caused the recorder to always use the same folder when saving snapshots (due to using the creation date timestamp as the identifier).

Bug in bug tracker:

Test Plan

Check template metadata fix

  • Create or use a template to create a new document
  • Select File -> Document Information
  • Observe Created date:
    • 5.1.0 - Date is the same as the creation date of the template
    • w/fix - Date is now the current timestamp

Check Recorder fix

  • Create or use a template to create a new document
  • Open Recorder Docker
  • Start recorder
  • Draw a bit
  • Stop recorder
  • Create new document using same template
  • Start recorder
  • Draw a bit
  • Stop recorder
  • Open recording folder
  • Observe location of snapshots
    • 5.1.0 - Snapshots from both recordings are added to the same directory
    • w/fix - Snapshots are saved to seperate directories
