Readme markdown bug: codeblock after colon-indent doesn't render properly (BB-8666)

agnes chang avataragnes chang created an issue

In my readme code I have:


Returns all available collections which each represent a field through which ch\
anges can be tracked. Optionally returns a count of the number of records avail\
able in each collection.

**param** *count*

: optional. boolean.


: json string of two possible formats:

        names: [


            name:   <string>,
            count:  <int>

This renders as bitbucket broken render

When it should render as working render

    Hi Agnes,

    I've heard back from the developer of Python-Markdown. This particular bug won't be fixed in Python-Markdown and is classed as a "quirk" of markdown.

    As such I'm closing this issue. As I said before you can workaround this by using 3 backticks instead of indents.

    Cheers, Brian
