> Name of contribution: hyperxmp
> Author's name: Scott Pakin
> Package version: 2.3b
> 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 2.3b fixes a obscure but annoying bug that sometimes causes
> documents using the memoir class to abort with a spurious "Too many
> unprocessed floats" error.
