cscope is a great tool index C/C++ sources and allow to navigate through the code. I have learned that the project is mostly dead and what is worse it uses its own database format to store the index. I would like to see some extended functionality in the tool - e.g. search whether a function A is reachable from B, filtering search results per-file, fix functions with function parameter detection (such functions are not recognized properly currently) and some others.
See if the cscope specific storage can be replaced by a more generic database (sqlite?) and understand how the code flow works so that new extensions would be easier to implement.
This might turn out as a complete disaster with "better not touch this" outcome, but let's try it at least.
