GSoC: Week 8: InputEngine.extend(functionalities)

Published: 07/19/2020

What did I do this week?

I didn't know about usage of other triage data like custom severity so I asked my mentor about it she gave me various use-case scenarios where it can be useful. After understanding requirements, I have added support for three new fields to our input_engine: 1) comments, 2) cve_number and 3) severity. Now user can specify these triage data and it will get reflected in the all machine readable output format. I have also added support for wheel and egg archive format. I have modernize error handling in outputengine and extractor. I have also fixed a bug which was causing progress bar to be displayed on quite mode. 

What am I doing this week? 

I am going to work on configuration file this week. I most likely going to choose toml as our config file format as recommended by PEP. 

Have I got stuck anywhere?

No I didn't stuck anywhere this week.
