      Description

      Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/) is software for managing a digital ebook library, and editing ebook metadata (ie. Picard for books). We'd like to add integration with BookBrainz, so this is one of the two tasks that will serve as a foundation for this work.

      A plugin should be created for Calibre which will allow the user to select an ebook in their library, click a button or menu entry to open up a dialog box and enter a BBID (eg. caa83b66-8cf6-4f97-b048-dfe4b7b54208) from BookBrainz to fetch metadata from the BookBrainz web service and use it to update the ebook metadata.
