reportabug has no public API. However, modules specified on the command line may expose a
_reportabug_info generator to provide additional info.
def _reportabug_info(arg): yield 'summary', 'summary line of text' yield 'key', VALUE
Each key/value pair will be added to the result section for the module. If the
summary key exists, it will be added to a summary section if one exists for the selected output format.
arg parameter is currently undefined, but may be used in future.
Contributions are welcome. Feel free to file an issue or PR.
Requests to add further information to the report should include supporting evidence, such as a bug that would have been diagnosed more quickly with the additional information.
