Just a few links:
- Where everything is documented: http://pandoc.org/MANUAL.html
- If you have questions or suggestions: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/pandoc-discuss
- Contributing to pandoc is also a great way to get your feet wet with Haskell. In my experience, very supportive community. See http://pandoc.org/CONTRIBUTING.html and for good first issues: https://github.com/jgm/pandoc/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+...
Finally, a great feature, that hasn't been mentioned here, is pandoc filters. Basically, pandoc provides a way for scripts (in any programming language) to hook into the transformation pipeline and modify the document AST (similar to the HTML DOM) in-between the reading and writing steps. See http://pandoc.org/filters.html
i'm not the parent, but that is the main reason i try to abstain from posting on public forums unless its under a pseudonym, which my github account isn't.
I'm not trying to say that my anonymity is guaranteed with irc, its just unlikely that future employers and similar link it to me.
Requiring everyone to sign in with full, verified name limits what people can talk about.
In fact I'd almost recommend against commenting online on anything using your full name.
Overall great experience. Thanks for the great tool :).
