DescriptionPeople will not likely find their way from the source distribution how to contribute to Doomseeker & Wadseeker.

In ticket 3444 Zalewa makes some great points that should be included ^-^

Patch by me, attached.

Spoilers for references included:
  • Russian Overkill
  • Doom II maps, monster names, etc.
  • Push

This patch makes mentions to things which other tickets should consider with implementation. I'll try to find their relationships.

It's straight to the point, just the way I like it.

Two remarks from me:

1. The .md format should maintain usability in the plain-text format as much as possible. This is achieved here, however I'd still like to nitpick about the `hg clone` line. Personally I prefer when command lines stand out in a way that makes them easy to copy and paste, especially if the command is short and fits within the column limit.

+A typical way to get started is to clone the Mercurial repository, using a
+Mercurial client from command line.
+ `hg clone [^]`.
+Refer to the manual of your client for information on interfacing
+with Mercurial.

2. The unit testing engine is not entirely useless. Yes, it's crude and doesn't automagically translate #define macros to test cases and fixtures, but it does its job if you know how to use it. Its pro point is that it's straight-forward. Everything to know about it is in the code and it doesn't need any obscure rituals to use. It's partially why I've been delaying its replacement for so long.

The first one is a fair point, although with CommonMark your exact example wouldn't do what you intended: the backticks would be visible. I addressed this in patch 0002, attached.

As for your second point, I've decided to remove the section on unit tests (for now).

Merged the patches as-is:

1. [^]
2. [^]
3. [^]

The end result is: [^]

Looks good to me. Resolve?

I have personally used commonmark.js dingus as a reference for rendering, and thus don't really care for rendering issues which may be apparent on Bitbucket. (Maybe Bitbucket will improve or switch their renderer in the future.)

We'll probably mention this in the changelog later.
