Description Fabian Deutsch 2013-10-07 15:20:07 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.
Comment 1 Luke Macken 2014-01-17 15:21:17 EST
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?
Comment 2 Luke Macken 2014-08-26 17:35:39 EDT
Bodhi currently supports markdown, which has been vastly improved in the bodhi2 codebase as well.
