Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

What the question says.

For the fist part of the question, the code is reported to be under copyright of Jeff Atwood (2009-2011); it is visible in the fist lines of the source code (in the initial comment). The last commits done in the code hosted on Google are done by balpha.
For the second part of the question, it is not the same, as there are extensions used on Stack Exchange that are not included in MarkdownSharp.

@Null: please see… (details on how SE does it straight from the horse's mouth) – Shog9 Sep 22 '11 at 18:52
That copyright statement, if indeed present, surprises me a bit, as things originated from another project. – Arjan Sep 22 '11 at 18:58
(As an aside: why the line breaks rather than regular paragraphs?) – Arjan Sep 22 '11 at 19:02
@arjan this is covered here – Jeff Atwood Sep 22 '11 at 22:45
