XMP Metadata Missing!
#1
Using GIMP 2.10.x (x=2,4,6) on Windows 7 exported images contain NO xmp metadata.  This is true even though said metadata can be seen to be present using Image>Metadata>View Metadata.  Also, true even tough the Advanced Option indicating whether or not to export XMP metadata is checked.  Seems to be true for both tif and jpg exports.  At the same time GIMP 2.10.x seems to be doing a good job of preserving the EXIF metadata when photographic images are exported.

While GIMP has a reputation for handling metadata poorly it looks like GIMP 2.10.x has gotten better and is close to doing a good job of preserving the metadata contained in an original photograph, which is extremely desirable.

Having noticed that GIMP seems to have imported the questionable metadata from the image and allows it to be viewed it seems like retaining it in an exported image shouldn't be that difficult.

Various reports on this problem, at least it has eventually been added as a bug. see:

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/1485

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/1746

Might not be as easy to fix as you hope.
