the daemon reports:

> Name of contribution: hyperxmp
> Author's name: Scott Pakin
> Package version: 2.3a
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/hyperxmp/
> Summary description: Embed XMP metadata within a LaTeX document
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> XMP (eXtensible Metadata Platform) is a mechanism proposed
> by Adobe for embedding document metadata within the document
> itself.  The metadata are designed to be easy to extract,
> even by programs that are oblivious to the document's file
> format.  Most of Adobe's applications store XMP metadata
> when saving files.  Now, with the hyperxmp package, it is
> trivial for LaTeX document authors to store XMP metadata in
> their documents as well.
> hyperxmp integrates seamlessly with hyperref and requires
> virtually no modifications to documents that already exploit
> hyperref's mechanisms for specifying PDF metadata.  The
> current version of hyperxmp can embed the following metadata
> as XMP: title, authors, primary author's title or position,
> metadata writer, subject/summary, keywords, copyright,
> license URL, document base URL, document identifier and
> instance identifier, language, source file name, PDF
> generating tool, PDF version, and contact telephone
> number/postal address/email address/URL.  hyperxmp is
> compatible with pdflatex, latex+dvips+ps2pdf, latex+dvipdfm,
> xelatex, and lualatex.
> Version 2.3a fixes a minor bug that occurs when hyperxmp is
> used with a newer version of hyperref and the pdflang key is
> not used by the document.

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
catalogue repository.  (sorry the announcement has been delayed: it's
been a hectic few days...)
