Package name : bibus
Version : 1.4.1
Upstream Author : Pierre Martineau <email@example.com>

License : GPL-2+
Programming Lang: Python
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.
