Issue#940 is concerned with compiler warnings. Most of them come from xmpsdk/src. I've fixed the warnings, however perhaps it is time to refresh this part of the code base.

We have subtle changes in our version of the XMP-SDK which make an upgrade a difficult project.

I recall a discussion with someone from Adobe in an XMP forum when I tried to get them to change XMP-SDK a bit but was not able to get them interested. That was related to the per-object namespace registry. It is possible that my understanding of XMP at that time was not complete. Unfortunately, that has not improved in the meantime..

Andreas volunteered to take on this challenge in 2015.

There is a topic on the forum concerning IPTC checksum/digest. Phil (Harvey) has made a very helpful comment about this. And I think we should investigate if something needs to done about this checksum when we update the XMP support.

Yup. I've started to look at that on August 6.

Andreas has said something like "everything concerning XMPsdk is a big pain in the butt". I prefer to tackle difficult stuff early in a project and leave smaller matters to the end. So this is likely to get attention during Fall 2016.
