No objection from me. I just think that a markdown manual collaborated
with on GitHub is less collaborative (i.e., someone has to do the
integrations and approve them) as compared to a Wiki, where they just
have to be monitored. I doubt that Benny has that much available time
to do the integrations, and I think we'd all rather that Benny focus on
continuing to make MM the best damned MUA for macOS. :-)
On the other hand, if we have volunteers to do the editing from
submissions, then my concern would go away, and a manual format is
oftentimes that best format for certain people because of the linearity
(it's not my desired format, however).
That's my $0.02.
