@Arlolra , Actually that was step two on the current prototype i.e to input a markup file from the user and its type. I'll store it's path in the database and the file itself in the file system( it would keep the database light and efficient). Then the file is fetched along with another file that will contain the rules of the submitted markup file. And then convert the user-submitted file into HTML and for the rest we have parsoid.

The skill set for the project is not defined in the description yet. I have been working on CakePHP and node.js from development to deployment and willing to take up this for GSOC 2016.
@RobLa-WMF , your suggestion is deeply admired sir. I'll certainly host the code to my git account.
@Arlolra I am attaching my code and the result. This is a working model of what has to be implemented in this project in the long run. It reads a html file and converts <a> , <i> , <br> and <h1> tags as per Wiki - Markup ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Wiki_markup ) and saves the output in wikitext.html file. The screenshot below shows the html text and the equivalent wikitext.

@Arlolra, The code is on my local machine presently and with in next 24 hours I will deploy it on my domain(vanshkhanna.com) so that you actually see a working prototype live.
p.s some issues with my hosting plan.
Or I can mail you the code or post here but I don't see that as a professional way of doing it. Is it cool?
your reply is deeply appreciated,

@Arlolra My present prototype fetches text files and renders it's html equivalent
I was keen to show you my prototype so far and in the long run this is what that has to be implemented using a webservice in node.js
@Arlolra is there specific time at when I can reach you on IRC because I'm in India and whe have different time zones.
your reply is deeply appreciated.

@ssastry , I'm keen to take up this project for Gsoc 2k16. I'd appreciate if we have a short discussion on this idea as I have plenty of ideas flooding through my mind. Presently I'm working on a small prototype model on nodejs which serves the same purpose on a smaller scale.

Another query I have is that this "Bug fixing" is in order to facilitate a comprehensive understanding of mediawiki or a selection criteria. Because I've been working on mediawiki for a month now on my local machine and don't feel the need for a "basic understanding". Thank-you.
I'm keen to work on this project. Kindly brief me about where to start from. Your help is deeply appreciated. Thank-you.
