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

 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

 Version 2.6 of the package introduces a new pdfdate key.
 Like LaTeX's \date macro, pdfdate specifies the document date,
 which defaults to the build date.
