[NeXus-committee] HDF5-XMP metadata

Hi Everybody,
    OK, it seems to work now and I have moved all of the code. The 
README file in the repository should tell you all you need to know. I 
have also created a release and attached some precompiled binaries of 
the file browser plugins  for your convenience:

Note that Python code is provided to read and write metadata, but this 
code does not attempt to interpret the contents of HDF5 files. If you 
want to add thumbnails to your data files you will need to decide how 
the data should be interpreted and code the image generation yourself.

Have fun!
