A pack­age has been up­dated on tug.ctan.org and should make its way to your fa­vorite mir­ror real soon now. Thanks for the up­load, Jim Hef­feron ====================================================================== The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: xmp­incl Author's name: Maarten Sneep Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/xmp­incl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: In­clude "eXten­si­ble Me­ta­data Plat­form" data in pdfla­tex Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The XMP (eXten­si­ble Me­ta­data plat­form) is a frame­work to add meta­data to dig­i­tal ma­te­rial to en­hance the work­flow in pub­li­ca­tion. Ref­er­ences are given be­low, but the es­se­nence is that the meta­data is stored in an XML file, and this XML stream is then em­bed­ded in the file to which it ap­plies. New in this ver­sion is that the <?xpacket ?> tags are au­to­mat­i­cally added, which makes the whole pack­age much more stan­dards com­pli­ant. The pack­age checks the xmp file to see if it is used on an older file to avoid dou­ble in­clu­sion of the <?xpacket ?> tags (no changes to older sources are needed). - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the pack­age at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/xmp­incl al­though you may get a bet­ter net­work con­nec­tion by vis­it­ing a mir­ror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mir­rors .

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.
