Verify parser will not alter custom fields during updates

Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Developer Hub Keywords:


Custom fields are needed to hold additional manually curated information, however it needs to be verified that running the parser for updates will not remove/alter the values in these fields.

If the parser will affect them, the parser needs to be changed to handle the presence of these custom fields.

From what I can see in the WP-Parser code, there are checks to see if an entry already exists for a documentable element. If so, then that entry is updated, including the meta data. Custom data using other keys are not touched, so as long as you're using a different key name to WP-Parser, existing additional data should stay intact.
