I'd like to access the Metadata of a Multimedia Component during publish time with a Custom Deployer. Our Page in Tridion uses only a Page Metadata schema to link to other Components, and some of these Components link to Multimedia Components.
This is used to specify specific cache times for images during publish so we can flush them from the frontend cache using a keyword field in the image Metadata.
I understand that the Metadata is not available in the Deployer package when (Multimedia) Components are linked to from Metadata, because I don't get a Components.xml file generated in the Deployer package.
Any other ideas of how to get the metadata of the Multimedia Component into the Custom Deployer?
