This project started as part of a literature snowballing. The tools were developped out of necessity in a adhoc way. Thus, it has some bad design decisions, such as using Python scripts as a database, and choosing field names that are far from ideal.

Contributions to fix these and other issues are welcome! If you are going to change a field name that is used by the tool, please, try to make it configurable.
