Project: PDF Integration


I’m looking to work on the PDF integration for GSOC and had some questions about the details laid out on the project ideas page. Just to clarify, when mentions “full-text search” and “automatic extraction of metadata” is that the data needed for citations? e.g. Author, publisher, etc

I’m also a little confused on the steps needed to program the interface. Is it simply going to be an option that a user can click on (graphically a button on the toolbar) for the user uploads a pdf? What else do I need to consider when undertaking this project?
