Subject: JTextTools: DocBook+BibTex+JDVI

Hi all,

i'm a LaTeX+DocBook user and would be happy to have some combined Java 
tools for open project administration. I'm looking for an additional 
administrator and would be happy if he/she will be the main 
administrator. Additionally some developers would be helpfull.

1. Creating GIF images from LaTeX equations for the usage with docbook
2. Having a bibtex parser for
   2.1. creating bibml files when tags occur in sgml file (analogue to 
   2.2. (JCollateIndex), not that important
   2.3. referencing literature in Javadoc using a cite Taglet
   2.4. creating dynamic webpages showing: BibTex, BibML and linked PDF, 
PS, DVI documents where the last one can be shown using JDVI
3. Calling Jade,Openjade from ant (using, e.g. ant's Execute class)

SF projects:
BibKeeper, JReference
private projects:
JBibTexManager, JDVI, my private sources for task 2.1., 2.3. raw 3. with 
some problems

new project (SourceForge registering phase):
JTextTools (LGPL, GPL preffered !?) What do you think
I've released a first version at:

we need:
some administrators and developers

The existing tools BibKeeper, JReference can be included as packages
BibKeeper/ant/ant compile dist
cp bibkeeper.jar JTextTools/lib
JReference/ant/ant compile dist
cp jreference.jar JTextTools/lib

The efforts of BibKeeper and JBibTexManager should be combined and more 
1. different parser's ? JTextTools contains also an abstracted version 
of JBibTexmanager
2. GUI
strict distinction between algorithms and GUI

Please let me know if you are interested in such a project.

Furthermore there are some problems with the existing sources, e.g.:
- JDVI should be able to load default font files which are nearest to 
the expected ones (DPI, size, ...)
- BibKeeper should have the ability to sort entries (for vi users !) and 
format them. The parser should be more stable.
- Calling Jade from ant is not really stable (workaround ?)
- cite taglet should load bibtex file and generate HTML file 
automatically for the required {@cite abc2003} automatically. 
Additionally there must be a postprocessing step for the generated 
package.html files to generate correct href's.
