Many thanks Ben! I've been looking forward for this for a while!

I created a repo: https://github.com/nexusformat/hdf5xmp

hdf5xmp avoids the overloaded "metadata" in our context. It's more specific, but not as limiting like hdf5thumbnail. Hope you agree.

Best wishes,

Subject: [NeXus-committee] new git repository

Hi Everybody!
    I have some code for embedding metadata (including thumbnails) into
the "userblock" of HDF5 files (or as sidecar files) together with
plugins to show the thumbnails in the file browsers of the major OS's
(like you see for image files like jpegs). Documentation of the code is
attached for those that would like more detail. I would like to release
it as a new repository in the nexusformat github project, but I don't
have sufficient permissions to create a new repository. Could somebody
please create the repository for me? (I suggest "HDF5metadata" as a name.)
