So, some people tried to start working on a Markdown standard before and created the markdown organization at GitHub. While it doesn’t seem that there was that much progress with it, I guess it would make a lot of sense to bring those people in on board and maybe use the markdown GitHub organization to centralize the whole thing at one place. What do you think?
Maybe. I got the impression that @jgm was happy having the spec and reference implementations under his repo, as he did basically all the work. Seems fair to me, especially given his absurdly deep background in all things parsing and Markdown.
Perhaps longer term as the spec stabilizes and finalizes, it could be moved to some third party organization area?
That’s fine with me; it was just a suggestion anyway, so that we can unite the different communities and work on it together.
Anyway, I went ahead now, and invited them over.
