A BibTex Cite Plugin


The aim of this plugin is to provide the ability to cite from common bibtex (*.bib) files.
The plugin can use bibtex files out of a svn repository, a git repository or directly from an Wiki-Attachment.

The command structure is inspired by the reference and bibtex system in latex. This should make it easy to make this plugin compatible with existing trac - latex plugins.
