5 = Free form description of the extension =
6
7 Should definitely be more than a plain text but there is several choices for the storing format. Comments associated to extensions also have the same concern.
8
9 == Any provided syntax ==
10
11 * pros
12 ** wiki way
13 ** allow to do well integrated and nicer description more easily
14 ** works whatever the client used to displays it (as long as it as an implementation of XWiki Rendering). i.e. does not have to be a browser.
15
16 * cons
17 ** less safe. But a white list of macro should probably do it, definitely not allow script macros.
18 ** slower display of the extension description. But not that expensive either since it's not going to be scripts anyway.
19 ** same than when choosing the font in a browser: it's possible the client does not support the syntax used (client with older version of XWiki etc...).
20
21 == Server side rendered XHTML output ==
22
23 * pros
24 ** safer for the client since there is no transformation (cannot exploit a bug in some macro)
25
26 * cons
27 ** only work with XWiki Extension Repository
28 ** content bigger and so more things to transfer in client/server communication
