According to the Doorstep documentation:


"Extended attributes

In addition to the standard attributes, Doorstop will allow any number 
of custom attributes (key-value pairs) in the YAML file. The extended 
attributes will not be part of a published document, but they can be 
queried by a 3rd party application through the REST interface or the 
Python API.

In this example, an extended attribute invented-by is added to the item.

invented-by: some.guy at email.com"

Use of a standard format such as YAML is nice since it enables us to 
read these requirements files quite easily.

Similar to the Git overview in


we need something similar for the requirements tool.
