I haven't read the whole long thread, so perhaps this has been mentioned

Debian to use that de-facto standard (or some subset of it) for text
typesetting in the long descriptions, rather than re-inventing the wheel.

My understanding is that we currently have the choice between Markdown and
reStructuredText and from my point of view the right place to continue
the discussion is


For my understanding it is decided to use a formating library and I tried
to compare two portantial candidates.  Further investigation should be
done - preferably by people who really know these libraries.  My time for
such things is currently limited.

Kind regards
