Maybe we could model the process of "releasing" Creole 1.0 after the release process used in many open source distributions? That is, the schedule is planned (more or less), there is "feature freeze" after which no new features are being proposed, "version freeze" after which the proposed changes get either accepted or rejected. I don't like the fact that features only very recently introduced into Creole, without practically any implementation or testing, are suddenly going into the release candidate, just because the release date got set just after introducing them.

I agree with Yves that MultilineListItems and CodeHighlightingProposal deserve much more attention than the dreaded lists and escape characters. The latter only requires a small addition to core Creole (ignoring hashbangs after {{{), the former adds completeness.

By the way, The Student Experiment is largely a failure -- since the classes were "Introduction to Programming", most of the wiki content is pasted perl code -- the students didn't bother to comment their solutions or document anything on the wiki. I will be making the content available anyways.

Yves Piguet addressed the following questions on 2007-Apr-24:

Since there hasn't been a consensus on hyphens, shouldn't stars (the last choice in a stable version) be maintained?

There was indeed a consensus on hyphens at the WikiSym workshop in Denmark with which we decided to overrule by putting asterisks instead into the spec for bullet lists. Changing the spec to hyphens was a correction of our misjudgement . Why discarding current proposals which aren't rejected? E.g. MultilineListItems, CodeHighlightingProposal (I'd propose something more general for meta information)?

Most wikis can't handle multiline list items, so this would require a massive rewriting of wiki engines and is thus outside the scope of Creole. The code highlighting proposal describes a very specific display of meta data and is thus also outside the scope of Creole.

Interwiki: I believed that link format was outside the scope of Creole.

We have always had a link format in Creole, so I don't see how it is outside the scope of it.
