Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
It would be nice to be able to disable markdown/auto-escape text for fields
that support markdown. Some users prefer plain text; it would also be nice
to give them a user level option for a default markdown/plaintext.
I have several users that prefer using the web UI for submitting their
review requests, especially for SVN based diffs. Prior to 2.0, everything
was plain text. Now, everything is markdown by default. Many users don't
immediately notice this and they enter text as they always had. Supposing
someone mentions some code in description or testing done: "int
some_function(int argument_)", Those "_" have meaning in markdown and they
end up rendering something like: "int somefunction(int argument)" with some
Also this is inconsistent with rbt post: if you use rbt post with
description or testing done, it will default to being plain text and auto
escape unless you specify "--markdown": There's no way to get the same
effect when using the web UI.
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Please provide any additional information below.
I personally don't feel strongly about this; The workaround is to educate
and learn markdown, with my example, " `int some_function(int argument_,
)` " would render correctly. Some users see it as an additional hurdle to
code review to have to learn another markup language just to make their
text not get mangled.
