HSTS (S3 Metadata): Need for a feature that will allow the original metadata (example in the description) into the object with metadata at the destination Neptune2.0. The metadata was pointed to in Neptune1.0.

I.e., there is a need for implementing in a generic way for the S3 API to preserve S3 metadata for S3 to S3 transfers, reading and writing any headers that start with ‘x-amz-meta-’ for any transferred objects.

Example metadata for some of the files (Metadata is stored using the following S3 API):
