Summary description: Embed XMP metadata within a LaTeX document

Announcement text:

 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:
 authors, base URL, contact telephone number/postal address/email
 address/URL, copyright statement, creation date, document
 identifier, document instance identifier, file format, keywords,
 language, LaTeX file name, license URL, metadata writer, PDF
 version, PDF-generating tool, PDF/A compliance level and version,
 primary author's position or title, subject/summary, and title.
 hyperxmp is compatible with pdflatex, latex+dvips+ps2pdf,
 latex+dvipdfm, xelatex, and lualatex.

 Version 2.4 of hyperxmp embeds more precise timestamps (when
 possible), uses proper version 4 UUIDs, provides an \xmptilde
 macro for including tildes in URLs, and includes better support
 (thanks to Florian Breitwieser) for producing PDF/A-compliant XMP
