Thanks for your interest.

You didn't mention a project in your subject, but from your mention of
Pandoc you probably mean the first project on the page;


... which at the moment is migration of wiki activity pages to git.

Pandoc is certainly helpful for that, though in a recent migration of
Sugar installation instructions the output of Pandoc needed some more

You might experiment with other Pandoc options, or look into how to
change or upgrade Pandoc to better meet the needs of the project.

Also survey the README.md files in the Fructose activity set, as some
of them were recently improved by GCi, and won't need to be replaced.

Also plan for the Wiki pages to be deleted and replaced by a reference
to the GitHub hosted README.md file.
