Is markdown really optional when using the development template?

Doug Lee
On examining the addon development template at https://bitbucket.org/nvdaaddonteam/addontemplate/get/master.zip (the link found in the NVDA
Add on Development Guide), I find that the README file states that markdown is optional; but the included sconstruct file imports the
markdown module unconditionally.

Has anyone tried using this template without setting up markdown?

I've developed a few minor addons but have not tried to use the template until today. I am using Cygwin as a development environment, though
that shouldn't matter for this question. (I have not yet determined the best way to install markdown for Cygwin yet though.)

Hi,
My fault - I'll update the add-on dev guide and the template (on GitHub) to
state that Markdown is now required (using Windows Subsystem for Linux at
the moment).
Cheers,
Joseph
