"metadata" is used both as singular and as plural.
The first change fixes a case in which the verb has a singular conjugation
but absence of article indicates a plural case.

The second and third changes are for consistency with the first one inside
the same paragraph.

Nitpick: this paragraph does not apply to this patch anymore as far as I
can tell.
