[Pulp-dev] Markdown docs - pulpcore and plugins

Am I understanding this correctly, that you (ultimately) want to convert all existing reStructuredText documentation to markdown instead?

If so, will you also be updating the plugin template?

Or is pulp_file the reference implementation to watch here?

Currently pulp_deb is overdue for a major rework of its documentation, but I would like to avoid having to do that twice in a row. ;-)

+1 to pulpcore and pulp_file switching to markdown. It's quicker to write and easier to read.

Once a few days have passed for any concerns to be raised, if none are, then how about this for a plan?

1) merge your PR for pulp_file
2) verify that the docs show up on https://pulp-file.readthedocs.io/ correctly
3) start into a PR to convert pulpcore documentation to markdown

I searched about how to use markdown on sphinx and found this [1]
This helped me to document pulp_file client [2], currently, it introduces markdown docs from the client, keeping the pulp_file rst docs.

Instead of getting mixed formats for docs,
I propose we move our current docs to markdown,
please share your thoughts!
