hmm, i've added a comment just for testing about an hour ago, and i
don't see a notification on the list.

hi Chet,

actually, since i brought up this topic, what i really want is a "plain
text" renderer that actually does plain text properly  :)

as far as i can tell there is no way to paste something like an XML
schema diff into a JIRA field without it getting its whitespace mangled
such that it is very difficult to read.

you have to actually log in an click "edit" on a field to view it properly.

the WikiRenderer is documented to have "{noformat}" and "{code}"
directives that should allow whitespace preserving display.

alternatively, if JIRA allowed file attachments (without mangling them),
that could well be good enough; i'm hoping that that's just an extra
click, can open a new browser tab with a "text/plain" media type that
the browser can display, and doesn't require login.

at least, that's how attachments in Bugzilla work :)
