How to generate PDF/A and PDF/X?

I wonder if pdflatex can produce a standard PDF/A-1 or PDF/A-2 for archival purposes. That would be quite useful.

Of course by that I mean fully standard compliant PDF/A; embedded fonts, metadata... the whole deal.

    You can simply \usepackage[a-1b]{pdfx} for a PDF/A document or \usepackage[x-1a]{pdfx} for a PDF/X document. The full documentation of pdfx package is available here. Sep 10, 2020 at 9:04

Yes, it can (although I don't know, how far the support goes at the moment). Check out the following website: Generating_PDF/A_compliant_PDFs_from_pdftex
