Non-semantic (whitespace, formatting) issues w/ Parsoid output on Talk pages
Open, MediumPublic

Description

The DiscussionTools team has identified a number of minor "wikitext code style" issues with Parsoid's output on Talk pages. These range from different defaults for whitespace after colon lists, to dirty diffs (violation of the expectation that a comment only changes a single wikitext region), to problems with what is possible to represent given the limitations of wikitext indentation markup.

This is a tracking bug to allow the Parsing-Team--ARCHIVED to get a better overall picture of the issue, so we can start to categorize the types and severity of issues, and reason about general approaches we can take so we're not just swatting a series of flies in inconsistent ways.

Next step
Based on a conversation with Ed this week, it sounds like the next step for this task is for Parsing to think about this bundle of issues and determine what would be involved with resolving them.
