16:42 TimToady it occurs to me, looking at the ranking by popularity task, that there are a number of tasks that should produce the same output, and that some subset of those could just list that output in the task description and then have an automatic checker for each solution that marks it pass/fail
16:42 TimToady for something like popularity that changes over time, the required output could be a consensus opinion
16:43 TimToady assuming all solutions could be tested on the same snapshot of data, of course
16:44 TimToady downside is that you'd have to spec the output format a bit more tightly than most tasks do
16:44 TimToady just an idear...

17:36 GlitchMr BenBE: https://gist.github.com/3640822
17:37 GlitchMr As far I can see, GeSHi 1.2 passes every test
17:37 GlitchMr But also triggers every single false positive
17:38 GlitchMr It's old thing, but I guess it sort of works
17:41 GlitchMr By the way, Pygments passes every test aside of if () /blah/ test
17:42 GlitchMr Perhaps I have confused it with Pygments
17:42 GlitchMr (also, I can see GeSHi 1.2 being good, but well, it doesn't have advantage of supporting lots of languages)
