  Description     : builds a local copy of the NVD/JVN (vulnerabilitiy databases)

This is tool to build a local copy of the NVD (National Vulnerabilities Database) [1]
and the Japanese JVN, which contain security vulnerabilities according to their
CVE identifiers [2] including exhaustive information and a risk score. The local
copy is generated in sqlite format, and the tool has a server mode for easy querying.
This is needed by vuls.

I'm going to maintain this in the Pkg-go group, the name of the binary is going
to be "go-cve-dictionary".
