Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1016282
Use markdown for update descriptions.
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:45:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently a custom falvor of markup is used in the bodhi updates description.
If we were using some standardized format it might be easier for description consumers like gnome-software to display the descriptions in the correct markup.
Bodhi uses python-markdown to render the update description, which is almost fully-compliant with the spec. http://pythonhosted.org/Markdown
Do you have any suggestions for how to make it easier for gnome-software to consume/render these descriptions?
Bodhi currently supports markdown, which has been vastly improved in the bodhi2 codebase as well.
