Give this a better Summary.

To submitter: your request will have a much better chance of success if you attach a patch :-)

The main goal of Pdftag is to provide a simple and usable solution to edit metadata found in PDFs.

Other more complex solutions exist to manipulate PDFs, but they may have dependencies on Java and may be not completely free.

This project makes use of the poppler library for all the PDF information reading and writing.

It is written in Vala and GTK+, meaning it is fast and has a small memory footprint.
