  Description     : bibliographic and reference management software

 Bibus is a bibliographic database entirely written in python
 that uses the cross-platform wxWidget library.
 Bibus has been developed with OpenOffice.org
 (http://www.openoffice.org/) in mind and can directly
 insert citations and format the bibliographic index in an
 opened Openoffice.org writer document.

Personnal comment: As a user, I really like Bibus. I find it easier to use and
more stable than its proprietary competitor, EndNote.

Upstream author is responsive and packaged Bibus as a Debian native pacakge. In
the following SourceForge bug, he invites people to finish the work and make
bibus an official Debian package.

As this is not a Debian-specific package, it should not be a native package. Please repackage it as a non-native package.
