I realize you are talking about MediaWiki markup
only, but I would like to encourage to also watch
what other wiki engines are doing. Wiki engine
implementers will come together at
WikiSym 2006 (www.wikisym.org/ws2006
and I expect a standardized wiki markup to be an
important topic (I hope we will have workshop on
it). In any case, if you proceed with this work,
I would like to encourage you to keep the wiki
standards mailing list informed, see
We have plenty of engine implementers there fighting related problems.

Hello, list members.
I have noticed that there is a summer of code project for definition
and formalization of wiki markup language. But it is stated in the
current meta-wiki page that this would be "mostly a documentation step
and developer discipline issue."
Well, the summer of code rules clearly specify that a valid project
can't be one of documentation, but of coding (and I assume "discipline
issues", whatever that means, is also non-coding).
With that said, I am interest in such project if it involves coding.
To make this change into a valid summer of code project, I propose to
do a wiki parser, for which I have already designed some draft rules
in a yacc/bison manner.
Who should I talk to? Maybe I can email some of my draft yacc/bison
parser to the mentor?
