I am creating a new project which will utilize the open source project MarkdownSharp. Rather than downloading and compiling the bits myself I decided to use the MarkdownSharp NuGet package.

I realize that MarkdownSharp can be utilized for more than just web pages, but it seems strange given Stack Overflow's focus that there isn't a NuGet package including Stack Exchange's WMD project PageDown.

Are there any plans to create an additional package or to modify the current package?

Note that the Stack Exchange WMD project (renamed PageDown) is on Google Code. – Tim Stone Jan 20 '12 at 19:19
    
@TimStone thanks didn't realize that, which bolsters the argument for including PageDown in a NuGet package. – ahsteele Jan 20 '12 at 19:56
    
I am not aware of a Nuget package that we've created of MD#. – balpha Jan 20 '12 at 22:23
    
Besides that, it would make zero sense to include Pagedown/WMD in that package, even if we did make it. – balpha Jan 20 '12 at 22:31

@balpha why does it make zero sense? Call it Markdown Sharp for MVC. – ahsteele Jan 20 '12 at 22:50

Just to confirm what I said in the comments: We did not create that package. I don't know who did, but it was none of us. Our official version of MarkdownSharp is on Google Code, and there only.

That is very good to know and just for further clarification the Stack Overflow "supported" version of Page Down is at: code.google.com/p/pagedown? – ahsteele Jan 25 '12 at 16:56
    
Yep, that's it. – balpha Jan 25 '12 at 17:03
    
It says Jeff Atwood in the package description, so... – John Jul 31 '15 at 18:08
    
@John ... so...? – balpha Aug 3 '15 at 10:34
    
Atwood is Stackoverflow's co-founder, so it's certainly close to it. – John Aug 6 '15 at 12:06
    
@John Jeff is listed as author, not package owner, so I don't understand what this has to do with the question (or my answer). – balpha Aug 6 '15 at 12:09
    
@balpha True, I didn't notice the distinction. – John Aug 6 '15 at 13:00
