Fedora-Flavored Markdown


Text fields in Bodhi2 support an enhanced version of markdown. This is a cheat sheet for your reference.

Be advised that, even if Bodhi supports a wide set of markups, the update notes will be used for the description field in appstream tag, which instead supports only a reduced set of markups. Unsupported markup may be showed as plain text or lead to unexpected beahvior in package managers GUI!

You can do HEADERS by underlining or by prefixing with the # character:

This is an H1

This is an H2

# This is another H1

## This is another H2

You can do BLOCKQUOTES using email-style prefixes with the > character:

> This is a quotation
> over many lines
> > and it can be nested(!)

LISTS work like you’d expect, by prefixing with any of the *, +, or - characters:

Check out this list:

* This
* is
* a list...

You need a blank line between a paragraph and the start of a list for the renderer to pick up on it.

EMPHASIS can be addedd like this:


You can save your code references from being misinterpreted as emphasis by surrounding them with backtick characters (`):

Use `the_best_function()` and _not_ that crummy one

LINKS look like this:


…but we also support bare links if you just provide a URL.

You can create CODE BLOCKS by indenting every line of the block by at least 4 spaces or 1 tab.

Here is a code block:
  for i in range(4):
    print i

You can reference BUG REPORTS by simply writing something of the form tracker#ticketid.

This fixes PHP#1234 and Python#2345

…we will automatically generate links to the tickets in the appropriate trackers in place. The supported bug tracker prefixes are: (these are all case-insensitive)

Fedora, RHBZ and RH (all point to the Red Hat Bugzilla)

And you can refer to OTHER USERS by prefixing their username with the @ symbol.

Thanks @mattdm

This will generate a link to their profile, but it won’t necessarily send them a notification unless they have a special FMN rule set up to catch it.

Lastly, you can embed inline IMAGES with syntax like this:

![Alt text](/path/to/img.jpg)
