Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I want to get the StackOverflow data dump in Markdown Format, for testing markdown sharp on real content.

Could this please be added to the data dump?

Edit:

the dump body of this post: StackApps Flair on Careers is:

<p>I'm trying to get my <strong>StackApps flair to display on my Careers CV</strong>.</p> 

<p>The <a href="http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/50820/associate-stackapps-account-with-careers/">Meta question "Associate StackApps account with Careers"</a> is marked as <code>status-completed</code> and I do see the association button on Careers, but after I click it, nothing happens! </p> 

<p>Is this the right procedure to get my StackApps flair to appear, or am I forgetting/missing something?</p> 

But the markdown if the same text will be:

I'm trying to get my **StackApps flair to display on my Careers CV**.

The [Meta question "Associate StackApps account with Careers"][1] is marked as `status-completed` and I do see the association button on Careers, but after I click it, nothing happens! 

Is this the right procedure to get my StackApps flair to appear, or am I forgetting/missing something?

personally I think only the markdown should be supplied, we can always transform it to html anyway – waffles May 25 '10 at 23:36

You can now get the raw markdown in the new PostHistory XML included with the latest dump. Please see Anatomy of a Data Dump for a description of all the new fields.
