The pack­age here has been up­dated and is work­ing its way through the mir­ror­ing sys­tem even now. Thank you again, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ............................................................................ The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: xmp­incl Author's name: Maarten Sneep Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/xmp­incl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: In­clude eXten­si­ble Me­ta­data Plat­form data in PDFLaTeX. Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text:
This is a mi­nor up­date for the xmp­incl pack­age. Some URL's in the in­cluded xmp file should now come through slightly less man­gled than be­fore. Note that there are still a few com­mon char­ac­ters that will cause a mess (% for in­stance).
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/xmp­incl . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/xmp­incl (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

xmp­incl – In­clude eXten­si­ble Me­ta­data Plat­form data in pdf

The XMP (eXten­si­ble Me­ta­data plat­form) is a frame­work to add meta­data to dig­i­tal ma­te­rial to en­hance the work­flow in pub­li­ca­tion. The essence is that the meta­data is stored in an XML file, and this XML stream is then em­bed­ded in the file to which it ap­plies. How you cre­ate this XML file is up to you, but the au­thor started in­ves­ti­gat­ing this be­cause he wanted to em­bed li­cens­ing in­for­ma­tion in the files he cre­ated. The li­cense the au­thor chose is one of the Creative Com­mons li­censes, and their web-site of­fers this in­for­ma­tion in a valid XML-file, suit­able for di­rect in­clu­sion.
