    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9432?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13613306#comment-13613306

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-9432:

We just got done migrating from Forrest to APT.  Are we going to get rid of APT now?  Its
time on this earth was pretty short, I guess.

>                 Key: HADOOP-9432
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9432
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: build, documentation
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
>            Reporter: Steve Loughran
>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: HADOOP-9432.patch
>   Original Estimate: 0.5h
>  Remaining Estimate: 0.5h
> The "markdown" syntax for marking up text is something which the {{mvn site}} build can
be set up to support alongside the existing APT formatted text.
> Markdown offers many advantages
>  # It's more widely understood.
>  # There's tooling support in various text editors (TextMate, an IDEA plugin and others)
>  # It can be directly rendered in github
>  # the {{.md}} files can be named {{.md.vm}} to trigger velocity preprocessing, at the
expense of direct viewing in github
> feature #3 is good as it means that you can point people directly at a doc via a github
mirror, and have it rendered. 
> I propose adding the options to Maven to enable content be written as {{.md}} and {{.md.vm}}
files in the directory {{src/site/markdown}}. This does not require any changes to the existing
{{.apt}} files, which can co-exist and cross-reference each other.
