Haddock Support For Markdown Syntax
Currently Haddock uses a unique markup syntax for writing documentation which is used nowhere else. This is unfortunate since there is already a plethora of markup languages and having to remember yet another one is a nuisance for the programmer. It would help if Haddock could support more commonly available formats.
Goals of the Project
The aim of the project is to modify Haddock to support a commonly used markup syntax, for instance Markdown. These modifications should be made available to the Haddock project for possible inclusion into the tool.
A possible route would be to use Pandoc which already has a good Markdown parser and integrate that with Haddock.
