Add a New Comment Rich Markup

(triaging old savannah tickets)


Regarding this:

I agree this is a good idea. The markup support in savannah could use
some attention (and perhaps it's time to support more common mark-down/).

Sadly, we currently do not have the man-power to implement it (and evidently, didn't have it in the last 5 years since this ticket was opened).

I'm adding this idea to savannah's "todo/wishlist" page (#26):

On the bright-side, we've just made hacking on savannah's PHP code much easier.
If you (or others) wish to help, please see:

As such, I'm closing this ticket for now.

This is a known issue and will be fixed in due time.

Unfortunately, it's not very high on the 'things to fix immediately list.'

I added a comment using verbatim markup to a bug, and the resulting display in the browser is corrupted (although the email shows the correct content)

See my comment of Jan 16 here:

You can probably look up the content in the database, but FYI this is what it was:

After some discussion recently by the GNU maintainers, the coding standards
have been modified:

In the C locale, the output of GNU programs should stick to plain ASCII for
quotation characters in messages to users: preferably 0x22 (‘"’) or 0x27
(‘'’) for both opening and closing quotes. Although GNU programs
traditionally used 0x60 (‘`’) for opening and 0x27 (‘'’) for closing
quotes, nowadays quotes ‘`like this'’ are typically rendered
asymmetrically, so quoting ‘"like this"’ or ‘'like this'’ typically
looks better.

I used the correct verbatim tags (+'s and -'s on both sides) in my post; I didn't use them here since I'm not sure it won't mess up again.
