[openFATE 312777] Provide a working pandoc in OSS
Feature changed by: Peter Trommler (ptrommler)
Feature #312777, revision 12
Title: Provide a working pandoc in OSS

+ openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
+ Priority
+ Requester: Desirable

Package Wishlist: Implementation
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Martin Schröder (oneiros)
Developer: Peter Trommler (ptrommler)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
pandoc (http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/) is a Haskell

(https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Haskell_%28programming_language%
29) implementation of Markdown
(https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Markdown) with numerous
extensions and additional output formats. There is a package in devel:
languages:haskell/openSUSE_Factory
(http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/haskell/openSUSE_Factory)
, but that needs much more love
(https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=713301)
pandoc seems important enough to fix it and get it out of its Haskgell
ghetto into OSS.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: pandoc is probably the most advanced implementation of
Markdown which makes the creation of advanced documents very easy. It
would provide us with a simple way to create good documents in a
multitude of formats.

Pandoc is fixed. We need Haskell in Factory before we can have pandoc.
