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, document type,
 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 3.0 of hyperxmp makes the code compatible with LuaLaTeX 0.85+.
 (LuaLaTeX 0.85 completely revamped the program's PDF-related primitives,
 breaking compatibility with pdfLaTeX.) 
 hyperxmp 3.0 also makes the XMP CreateDate, ModifyDate, and MetadataDate
 all match the PDF CreationDate, which seems to be required by the
 PDF/A standard.
