    hmm, a couple things: - the lines that you are referring to were not written by me but contained in the original author's repository. Perhaps we should submit the bug report to him rather to my fork of his repo? - it's not at all clear to me what you would want the output the output to be from "text" builder that you're using. Should it just copy the citation tag verbatim? Just leave it out of the text output? I've never used the text builder, and am not sure what you would want from it.

    Hm. Sure. I don't remember why I didn't file it over there. Maybe I thought that development takes place here now, because you were the last to commit.

    As for the Text Builder: No idea for now. The cheap way out might be to leave a footnote with the citation.
