bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Needs Triage.Nov 22 2014, 12:58 AM
bzimport set Reference to bz39058.

This is fixed in production in that it doesn't introduce the excess quotes any more, see . It still adds <span> tags though, but that's fixed on master.

On my localhost, the diff I get is as follows, and I think that's perfectly reasonable:

− '''This is a te<nowiki>''</nowiki>st page for bug 35058.'''
+ '''This is a ''te<nowiki>''</nowiki>st'' page for bug 35058.'''
