You can install collective.novate, which does it properly. Note you want 
to add http://good-py.appspot.com/admin/plone.autoform/1.0b2 to your 
'extends' line in buildout as well.

Or you can use /ownership_form in Plone (tack it on the end of the URL). 
Note that this has problems with its recursive algorithm, though.
