including the solution, e.g.


As far as I know the bibserver project has been abandoned for quite a long
time.  The developer was a contractor and when funding stopped, so did the
development.  It's open source though, so you can fix it up yourself.

I created an issue for you here:
that you can reference with you pull request (although even trivial pull
requests don't seem to be getting merged, so you may just have to maintain
your own fork)
