GitHub Enables Markdown Documentation
At first, I thought they'd eventually get around to it and that is the best I could hope for as surely they are too busy to respond to a non-paying customer like me. Then I learned they the used the Lighthouse ticket system to manage their project and took public submissions for features.
Before logging a feature request I did some searching and found a ticket alre ady out there requesting exactly this same feature that I wanted. So I just added my own comments to the ticket to give it a +1.
After a little back and forth I learned it was implemented tonight (just a week after my first comment). Good to see such responsive development.
