A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and should make its
way to your favorite local mirror in a day or two.

Thanks again,

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:

This is just an interactive script that I use in my Latex work to generate 
Bibtex files. I do not like typing all the unnecessary details nor do I 
like copying and then modifying entries.

So I wrote this small script to help you type only what you need in your 
(customized) bibliographies and generate a file which contains all the 
extra info. I just wanted to share it. Who knows, some might find it useful.

Note that its not a bibtex file parser! I'll be happy to make improvments 
if someone (besides me) ever gets around to using it. You're welcome to 
email me to provide suggestions.
