The forking is necessary. RT have not released MD 2.0 source yet. Chris' version removes the irrelevant parts for CGI use, and adds XHTML compliance. He is now looking at adding SVG dialect support instead of the currently supported View dialect. It may be that we have a dialect mechanism to support a number of dialects as plug ins. Your MDP is constrained by your copyright. Andrew's ML is an XML dialect ( I got it wrong before ).
